    ... and back on to the boat her finger tips were numb. Before D offered to pee on her, like any good husband would, Chantelle, our guide, offered some hot water and explained that it was not life threatening. Phew. Ordinarily the swimmers spend 20-25 minutes in the water, so we had already been pretty lucky but we were right by a second pod of dusky dolphins and the skipper couldn't resist taking us to the front and letting us have one more dip. We are so glad he did because ...

    ... and undergrowth are probably wet most of the time. Lichen and moss were rampant and rot was greedily taking over fallen wood. Everywhere, there were ferns. Although it was quiet, the birds, who didn't seem too intimidated by us humans, were making some beautiful music.

    ... surfed the net.

    On Monday, I was up early to go kayaking with seals (Kaikoura Kayaks was the company). Courtney has decided that kayaking is not for her so stayed in bed for a sleep in. The weather was perfect, the sea was calm and the kayaking was amazing. I was partnered with another single kayaker who had about the same level of experience as I had and we worked well together.
