This morning we were able to sleep a little longer. I got up at 7:00 a.m. with lots of energy, we had breakfast at the hotel and returned to our room to grab our suitcases and check out. We are headed to another B & B inn called Afrique. We were too early to check in, but they allowed us to leave our baggage there until we officially checked in. Another fabulous hotel.

We stopped for a lunch at Mission Rocks picnic site before visiting the beach. On the way down we saw blue wildebeest, zebra and kudu. There wasn't much beach in evidence, just the rocks and pools as the tide was ...
