From here we went to Greenwich, a pretty bay and headland with a large beach. In addition to being ...

... on the plane. We decided to try and wait out the rain a bit longer, so we huddled inside our tent for a few more hours. It still sounded like it was raining, but when we went to have showers, we realized the majority of "rain" was now water dripping off of the trees onto our tent.
