The tourists in us : Dunedin and Milford Sound
Mike drops me at the car rental office at 8. The woman at the desk struggles to find my name in the list of the renters. Actually, I had booked for a rent starting tomorrow. I'm not really surprised : when we're hiking, we quickly lose contact with the days.
Thanks to the car, we can go to the Remarkables, a ski station from where we can hike.
We spend the evening with Callum, a scout that I met at the World Scout Conference in Azerbaijan last August. Always great to hang out with nice local people and have a fun time together.
That's the perfect weather for a stroll on the beach in the Otago Peninsula. We enjoy seeing the sea again. While we're hanging around on the beach, we suddenly sea a big stone that starts moving. Wow, it's a sea lion! The animal is so huge, it's impressive. We keep our distances but take some time to fully enjoy this encounter.
We drive an hour to reach the departure of the cruises. In the early morning, through the clouds, a few mountains emerge, their tops covered with snow. Beautiful.
The rain has stopped and we fully enjoy the experience. After that, we drop Jenny at her trailhead while we drive back to Frankton. Tomorrow, we'll start hiking again.
