The Most Amazing Thing We Have EVER Done...
Yesterday was also fun, but it did not work out as well as we planned. We went to the Pancake Rocks and Blowholes (no jokes please, we didn't name them) which are a series of rocks by the shore where waves come crashing in. The waves smash into the rocks, then move into caverns with huge force. The waves end up coming up through the ground and spraying everywhere (thus the blowhole).
We did not get to do the make your own knife thing we planned, it was all booked up. Instead we rode around on a dune buggy through mud and water. Seemed like fun, but our first buggy kept breaking down so we switched vehicles half-way through. Then we ended up beaching our buggy in a particularly deep section. We didn't get too muddy and we felt slightly disappointed by this.
We also didn't get a tour of the brewery, the pamphlet said there was a 7pm tour, but the last one went at 6pm. False advertizing sucks! We did manage to have a couple of beers while watching a rugby match in a bar, so it all worked out in the end.
We hope things are going well in Canada, remember you are all pooling your money to buy us a helicopter for Christmas!
