      The bed was comfortable. The spa a bit manky, but we tubbed in it anyway. The open fire was comforting.

      I didn't want to leave. It was too beautiful. But all good things... We went in to town to invest in some gifts for the kiddies that we'd seen in a shop window the night before.

      ... already paid upfront we are given vouchers & a very kind lady there squeezes us on the 10.30 slot – result!!!!

      Quick film briefing & safety procedures talk & the bus picks us up for a short trip to South Bay to catch the boat. There’s a bit of a swell & a few passengers are obviously feeling a bit queasy already. There’s a helicopter up & flying that spots whales ...
