I cooked a Thai chicken curry in the electric pressure cooker for our evening meal, using the keep warm setting so we could eat later, and we went for a walk along the beach path at about 6.30. The evening was cool and humid.
Next day we tried for a swim before breakfast. The interesting thing happening was the abolone hour, with lots of people in black suits (but apparently not wet suits) with little bags out on the rocks. A nice young policewoman was on duty, plus there was a helicopter, I guess keeping an eye on the time. People generally stopped on time and departed in cars with their catch.
We didn’t find the water actually appealing, there was a lot of seaweed, so we decided that getting down to the beach and seeing the abolone hunt was our morning outing.
Marie and Geoff arrived at about 11.00 a.m. We had a cup of tea together and the sea breeze arrived at about 12.30 p.m. We lazed about during the afternoon, then went to the cafe for spiders and a smoothie for Stephen. We sat in the shade of the Winnie until it was time to go for our evening walk. Afterwards we each had our own meals, but sat together.
They left when it was still cool this morning, at about 10.00 a.m.
