Tidy room. Peculiar way to monitor and limit electricity use. All 3 outlets in the room are run through a single timer . You are required to push the switch every 30 minutes. No overnight charging of electronics.

... and tons of stalactites hanging down from the ceiling, some with moss growing on them. We entered maybe 2/3 of the way up and went down a long stairway that started in green plants and ended at a viewing platform facing the barren gray cave. My notes said to bring headlamps, which we didn’t have, but the whole side is open so sun does light it up somewhat. You have to stay on the platform, pretty far from the walls, so I doubt most headlamps would have much ...

... Swiss couple as Jennifer had developed a huge blister the day before and was finding the walk too painful. We had our elevenses there and left them behind to be collected by a boat a ferried on to the next lodge. Then we walked along the beach before following the path up and over the second hill by which time it was time for picnic lunches at Tonga Quarry Bay. A welcome break with another 5 km under our belts. Pippy had stayed with the Swiss couple for the boat ...

... to me as I've been out in the middle of the night and still seen the moon. What's up with this? The sunrise and sunset times seem to range from season to season, but clearly the moonrise and moonsets vary on some other pattern. And don't laugh, but I was a bit confused when I saw the moon setting in ...

Abel Tasman - Kayaks and Sandflies

... way back to our starting point in the kayaks. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we both really enjoyed it. We discussed maybe even staying there an additional day, but opted to hit the road instead. Greg discovered he'd been eaten alive by sandflies at this point as well which was not the most pleasant. At least the driving distracted from the ...
