    As we pulled into Timaru the van struggled to make it up a slight incline so we pulled up outside an aqua centre and set up the van. Day one we walked around Caroline bay, around the area played some crazy golf, visited the aviary, and walked around town to get to know the area.

    ... some kind of listening apparatus !overboard to see if they could here any sign of the whales. We eventually spotted another whale and were told it was the same whale we previously spotted, it was suggested it had resurfaced early because it had not surfaced long enough previously.
