Ulva with Flightless Guests

Ulva with Flightless Guests

Further from my last post about Port Pegasus with Flightless a couple of days ago Maria phone me and asked if I would guide their charter folks around Ulva, as Iris and I had done previously for them. So they picked me up from Golden Bay, and after one of Courtney’s superb lunches with the party, it was back onto Ulva.

It was an absolutely stunning day, glassy calm, and wall to wall blue sky, although later in the afternoon there was signs of a front approaching from the west, but a day or so away.

Some years ago Iris & I sold Sean & Maria of Pure Salt Charters our Fiordland and Stewart Island DoC Concessions and Environment Southland Consents to operate around Fiordland and Stewart Island. At the time I mentioned to Sean that if (when) they came down to the Island I would be happy to act as “Mud Pilot” for them. And that’s what I’ve been doing the last week.
