      Exactly what you want in a motel room, it was clean and tidy with a decent kitchen and a heater which actually warmed the room. We also scored a room with a small gsarden out the back..this was lovely and we wish it had stopped raining so we could use it!

      ... the hike back up was pretty long and it was LIFE CHANGING! Ok not really, but it tasted soooooo goooood). Hot Water Beach is a beach where there are hot springs under the sand in certain places. So you can either bring a shovel, or rent one from the local entrepreneurs taking advantage of tourists, to dig a hole in the sand and sit in the hole with the warm water like a hot tub.

We had a really lovely meal in a restaurant called Grill @ 42 where the owner gave us a list of things we could do tomorrow. Watch this ...

      ... the cave and we saw all of the silk webs that the worms produce in order to catch food.

      Finally we went on the most magical part of the tour, on a boat journey under a large completely black cave that was filled with glow worms in every single direction. It was very peaceful and was over all too quickly.
