The seas were pretty rough so while traveling we were confined to the enclosed seating area. We were all hoping that the last quick glimpse wasn't going to be the only one of the day. To our surprise we did not sail far from the main land. We learned later that the Hope Fault (between the Australian and Pacific plates) ...
