(This is the fifth in a series of blog posts about travelling around New Zealand in spring. It follows last week’s post, Doubtful Sound Revisited.)
THE next day we departed from our quiet anchorage at the mouth of Doubtful Sound / Pātea. It was a beautiful sunny day, not like the day before.
Wow, I said, just wow.
Here’s a sort of river of cloud that I saw near the entrance to the Sound. Very strange!
We sailed back up the Sound.
And into the Crooked Arm again, to get some more images of still water.
Here’s a video of Crooked Arm on day two.
And then on the way back over to Lake Manapōuri I got a clear view of the Wilmot Pass. Wow again!
And so, back to Manapōuri via the power station, where there is an information display.
My first book, A Maverick Traveller, is free as a PDF or epub from my website, a-maverick.com. If you liked these two posts on Doubtful Sound/Pātea, check out my new book about the South Island! It's available for purchase from this website, as well.
