Prior to breakfast Sarah and I took a walk/run along the beautiful beach in an effort to regain some lost fitness. Back at the unit and after Sarah investigated the motels aviary and found quail babies out of the nest and being attacked by ants. A call to the owner and we rescued 3 babies – de-anted them and breathed life back into the weak ones. One baby was too weak and was quickly and quietly disposed of.
After breakfast all three of us walked into town via the beach. Into a small shopping centre we had lunch at a café – mmm the best quiche (spinach and ricotta) I had had in ages. Then we walked to the Pet Porpoise Pool. We arrived there in time for their 1pm dolphin show.
When the commentator called for volunteers I offered – I thought why not? I wouldn’t get another chance. So I got to hold a fish up on the end of a pole and the dolphin leapt up and got it! The dolphins and seals kept us spellbound for nearly 1 hour. Then Kevin took off for the cleaning job at the airport. Sarah and I stayed at the Centre patted the dolphins and seals, fed the penguins and watched a reptile show.
We wandered home tired and happy by late afternoon and Kev arrived home soon after. We then freshened up and took the 100 metre walk toward the beach and had our dinner at the local Bowls Club restaurant. Once again a lovely meal in clean surroundings for a reasonable price kept us very happy. Back to our apartment and a good nights sleep = my head and earache were clearing.
