... crashing below. Nice way to start the day. Many people walked, ran and took their pooches for a walk here. Steps down to the beach where apparently a certain type of shark likes to hang out were present also. We ended at Split Lighthouse which is a great site.

... blasted into my room! The chief warden introduced herself and basically said that an emergency had been raised, it was being investigated and not to panic. That was followed by "we will get back to you when we know more". Ok great, so no alarm is going off meaning I wasn't even aware anything was wrong but you make me aware of a potential emergency, tell me to remain calm and then cut off! Surely leaving us in blissful ignorance until there is something ...
