    ... I rely upon too much.
    Ok, really here! Get fitted for raincoats, wetsuits and booties and get a waterproof bag. Go inside to find more instant coffee (seriously missing a good cup of Timmies, or any drip coffee for that matter) Thats okay, coffee probably isn't a good idea today anyway, peppermint tea, a piece of dry bread and a banana.

It would have been awesome to go there but they couldn't guarantee a sighting and it's further out. Further from ...

    ... and we found the harbour. The shark boats were on trailers and it didn't instill confidence to see how small they and the cages were. We located the White Shark Guest House just 400 metres up the road and poured out our tale of whale woe to Rene, our next landlady.

    ... a couple of whales playing in the sea. Keith even ventured into the sea for a swim with the kelp at Stanford's Cove, Fantastic fish, calamari and chips for dinner with the family at their dining room table was a great way to end off the day.
    And real Witblits, not mampoer!
