I am in Milford Sound. The rain has been reasonably heavy - we haven't had proper rain like this for a few months. Since 0900yesterday, its been raining at around 10mm/hr - thats for the last 30 hours. It certainly makes the rivers and waterfalls impressive. This one is the only permenant fall visible from the the road on the way in.
Well it all seems worth it now! Ed the drystone waller finished putting in steps and the wall and then a chap called Andy, whose partner works with Jude, has spent this week digging a bit more out and laying the slabs we bought last year that have been cluttering the back yard. The result is fantastic.
