Trippin' to Curio Bay

This was a very busy day, packed with scenic highlights and lots of driving. When I turned in our room keys at the reception desk, the same woman who’d checked us in, along with her husband, were present.

... meal at the Reef Steak and Seafood and came back and did a load of clothes. I was lying in bed when I remembered the stars. I threw on some clothes and went outside with the Google Stars app on my cell phone but there were too many lights so I went to bed.

Meandering day to Curio Bay. Started in Owaka museum for shipwreck stuff, the coast is littered with them but it does look like Cornwall or Pembrokeshire so not surprising I suppose. We learned that the ship "Surat" went aground on the rocks and gave the name to Surat Bay where we were staying.
