        Social Centre for Oban - amazing fresh sea food.

        Studio apartments are v good. Two beds, kitchen area, en suite and large TV. The service and greeting at reception are OK. This is the social centre for Stewart Island so bear this in mind if you chose to stay in the normal hotel rooms. can be v noisy at weekends from Friday night. The studio rooms are at the back away from main Hotel Block.
        Restaurant food is excellent (not cheap) sea food is mouth waveringly fresh. Restaurant service is ok. They are strict about timing and ceasing meal service.
        They are more than happy to store luggage after check out and have a guest lounge that can be used.

        "O Oysters, come and walk with us!"
The Walrus did beseech.
"A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
 along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
 to give a hand to each."

        The eldest Oyster looked at him,
 but never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
 and shook his heavy …

Also had the bike, The Indian, from Bert Monro that did the land speed record here that is still standing from 1937 (wild guess at remembering date). Only know anything about it cause we saw the movie years ago, no idea why I would ...

I just have a selection of blurred dark pictures which in my mid were going to be prize winning picture postcard shots, they were not and have now been deleted. Sadly this was to be our only kiwi of the night, but who cares, we only needed to see one and this huge female specimen was just perfect.

        The journey home was pretty scary, we ...

So defeated by doing any sight seeing today we headed to the French Cafe and shared an Apple and Cinnamon crepe and I enjoyed a cup of hot ginger and lemon (apparently good for calming the stomach after a rough crossing!) This was followed by a wander to ...

        ... in the cage at once, me and Chris both dived twice. It was cold, so you could only really stay down for 20-30 minutes at a time. As well as sharks we also saw penguins and more seals. There was also a huge bird (can't remember what it was called) that hung around the boat for most of the day. The sharks would literally play with it, not sure why it didn't fly off as on yesterday's dive they saw a shark eat one of them and then spit it out. We were out ...
