Well, well, well… where did the first part of the year go? I have had such an amazing Summer and have meet some wonderful people. One of highlights of the Summer for me was a tour I was lucky enough to co-guide with the most wonderful and ever so knowledgeable John Houlton and a group of 32 South Korean Geology students, I had a blast throughout the entire tour, but the last night is one I will never forget. I have had the privilege to enjoy the Milford sound cruise a couple of times now but I have never seen it so crystal clear and smooth before, so much so that the staff of the boat decided to change the itinerary to make the most of it. We spent the afternoon kayaking around a small cove and doing bombs off the back of the ship. As if we thought this night could not get any better the staff took the boat out of Milford where not only did we get to witness an amazing sunset over the ocean, and a variety of sea birds including the wandering albatross but we even had an evening show put on for us by a pod of at least 20 if not more common dolphins. No matter how many times I see dolphins, it always feels like its the first time, it fills me with such excitement like a child on Christmas eve. I can almost guaranty that I was not the only person who felt this way. As this was the last night and after the excitement of the day’s events we were all feeling sleepy even though we decided to stay up for a few hours to do some star gazing. I have shared some great times, loads of laughs and stories over this summer… Bring on next season.
