We tried to walk along the coast, but we were met by a big sunbathing seal. With the tide coming in, there was only a little space to pass him, but we didn't want to chance disturbing him. Seals look cute, but they are known to bite. So we decided to take the high road, literally. We climbed up to the ridge and had beautiful views of the ocean and coastline. Later, we made our way back to the coast and saw more seals on the rocks and even in the grass.
A takeaway seafood platter filled our tummies and on the way back to the harbour, Thomas pulled over to pick up our first hitchhiker. Yumi was a little perplexed until she saw the sweet little Dutch lady Thomas had stopped for. She had booked on the same morning boat and then the afternoon trip and decided to take a 5 hour walk to kill some time. She was so thankful for the short ride to town. It was her first trip staying in youth hostels so she wanted to show us what it was like inside. We kindly declined as we were well aware of what they are like, but it was so kind of her to offer.
The day didn't turn out as planned; it was even better. That's why it gets an A+ (for those of you not familiar with the American educational system, A+ is the highest mark one can recieve).
