An early start meant an early finish and I went to Bluff, home of the delicious oysters and famous yellow signpost.

The next morning David toured us around his pride and joy (although now, sadly, for sale, as the amount of work to keep it up has worn them down and drained their finances) and we were amazed to find an excellent museum, old farming equipment, several ponds, complete with several species of ducks and 2 majestic (but ...
