A travel blog entry by orla_liam


... annual hut passes. That made both of us want to run off an be hermits in the hills! We also wandered around the marina for a while, and ogled $60 million super yachts.

Thursday was another exploring day. We went west, and after a few driving detours we ended at Bethells Beach. We spent a bit of time frolicking in the sand dunes near the beach. This place is really interesting. You ...

A chilled out day for a change

In the Kems game you play with a partner and have to give them a secret signal to shout chip (or kems in this case) but the other team can't see it or they win instead. It got very intense and there were all sorts of silly false signals including Bobby making numerous animal noises at Georgia!
