Woke up reasonably early again & decided to go for a quick walk up to the top of the sand dunes that are right outside the back gate of the hotel. Everything was locked but that just added to the challenge! Eventually, I found a space I could squeeze through!

Mainly most likely because he had no idea when his next tour was going to be. He admitted to us that before the tour when he had found out he was getting one that he had been memorising the names of all of us and calling the office every day to make sure it hadn't been cancelled. The next day was an early day as we left the hotel with a breakfast box ...
