... as advised. We knew we were close to the seal colony and all Colm had on his mind was seeing the seal pups, so off we were again on our walk in search for the pups. As we were walking along the wooden pathway, we heard some noises. Yep we had found the baby pups and they were the cutest pups ever and they were by sure loving the attention! They were messing around and play fighting with each other until one of them got bored and decided to cross the road. Colm waved down a car ...

For now, we will rent bikes there and take a wine tour on our own. The weather is perfect - sunny but not too hot.
