Patea Doubtful Sound
20 July 2020 - David Cary
Thanks to Stanley, Alistair, Fleur, Gavin, Sally and John for an interesting and productive trip.
Some of us managed 2 nights in the forest on a packraftineering misson up Hall Arm. We heard male and female kiwi high up a side valley and saw dolphins and a lazy fur seal lolling about beneath the rock walls of the sound. Sea ice in a packraft is a first for me. The weather was clear, cold and dry. We didn’t see much sun in the deep forested valleys, but appeciated every minute we did get.
I have come home with a mind full of new ideas and a mountain of accumulated work.
