Brilliant boat tour!!!
Still in a daze over yesterday’s boat trip through parts of Desolation Sound… I can sincerely say yesterday’s tour will remain one of the top ten most cherished experiences in my life. The museum hires enthusiastic staff to run the tours, but through such enchanting and rugged scenery! The mountains, the seascape, the scarcity of human structures – beauty everywhere! It’s like going to another, less spoiled planet!
