    Started the day waking up next to the ocean on what we later determined was a go cart track. Yup that's how these guys a concrete track a hundred feet from water. Lisa found it in the middle of the night from a sat map and looked like a parking lot. That's RV camping "down under" for you. Made a quick breakfast of oatmeal and croissants before heading out to swimming with the seals. We found the seal and ...

    ... of the water from time to time. Dozens of fins were showing in every direction. As our time was beginning to run out, a few of the dolphins began to fling themselves out of the water, turing backflips before landing heavily back on the surface. This behaviour was probably a hunting technique to frighten fish. The backflips kept on coming and we were sad to have to leave the area and head back to port. As we arrived at the marina, we felt exhilarated and very satisfied. ...

    ... else we walked round he corner to face a climb over rocks and dodging the sea to get to the car park. A sleepy seal on the rocks shouted at me when I got too close as I didn't realise he was there too! Luckily they don't move very quickly!

After an hour we arrived to the hostel sweaty, fed up but alive with ...

    ... groups. We suited up with wetsuits, boots, and funny wetsuit material head cover thing and set off. We drove a bit down the coast and then on a small boat for a while. We stopped at a group of rocks and they were covered in fur seals. One little group had a few pups too and they were so cute. The snorkels went on and we were off. In the end we didn't actually see many in the water although a few did get quite close but we mostly watched them ...
