... a nice meal and bottle of vino tinto (Peter turned his nose up at his half a glass due to it tasting like "vinegar") it was back to the campsite just outside town where the sound of the eternal pumping of an airbed was cutting through the darkness. This guy had been at it since we left the site 4 hours before - that's dedication for you! Fair play. During the night, however, karma stuck as my laughing at the other guy's mattress problems came back to bite me ...

The funny thing was every time we get close to a cape, strong gust come with big swell and breaking waves which made us a little uncomfortable; then as soon as we pass the wind drops and sea calms a little as if it was trying to tell us something?!?

One of the locals tried to direct us to one of the buoys but in the
end decided it was not strong / secure enough for us so we headed for
the only hammerhead.
