Some of the taps on the tanks allowed a lot of water spillage.
We got sufficient food at each town.
Coastal cliffs and southern ocean were great. Tingle forest was very beautiful.
Near cyclonic winds on Thursday September 19. just about blew us off the coastal sand dunes. Swamp areas were interesting. Saw whales on 3 different days.
Too much walking in burnt areas.
Wildlife was scarce in most areas.
