After the sun had set we headed to our railway carriage for a well deserved ...

This playful pup was splashing around, learning to swim in the safety ashore, in the stream, then makes his way back to the beach to feed from his mother, spends months going up and down the stream, until ready to live in the sea. We only saw one, doing this, but at some times of the year the stream and waterfall can have hundreds in, learning to swim and play and socialise. A real thrill. Then arrived ...
