More Island Life

We spent a total of seven days at wonderful and remote Stewart Island. Besides hiking and birdwatching, we also had the opportunity to take several boat rides while were on the island. One day it was over to nearby Ulva Island. The next it was a historical tour where we covered several coves searching for penguins and other sea birds.
