Doubtful Sound, New Zealand

How beautiful and tranquil.........btw, 'tranquil' is one of my favourite words in English...sometimes i think i overuse it...

One funny thing....just last night i dreamt i had received a bunch of postcards and among them was a postcard from someone in either Australia or New Zealand, dont recall that part correctly...BUT, the postcard actually showed MY own town and it was a card from the early 80's or so....can you imagine my reaction? An oudated card from your hometown, postmarked from a totally different continent....
Well so far, not a single postcard in the mailbox....which somewhat lowers the chances of the dream coming true :P


Here is whats said about Doubtful Sound....

Doubtful Sound located in a World Heritage Area, is an overwhelming place. You can feel the power of nature here - the remoteness, the wildness and the peace.Known for its wilderness and wildlife, Doubtful Sound is the second largest of the 14 fiords in Fiordland National Park and it is three times longer and 10 times larger than Milford Sound. In Maori legend, the godly figure Tu Te Raki Whanoa created this incredibly beautiful fiord with the assistance of four young sea gods who carved out its sheltered arms. Today Doubtful Sound remains an unspoilt wilderness of many moods; one minute clear blue and sun-drenched, the next mysterious and mist-cloaked.
I guess thats why its called 'doubtful'...
