The fog cleared to a beautiful sunny day - and warm! Still getting used to the sun being very warm, even in winter, I had gone dressed in layers of fleeces and long sleeved tops...and was melting at the end of my 7km walk.
We had a coffee sat in the sun at the beach, and then climbed back into the car. Just about to drive off, T asked what I wanted to do for the rest of the day.
I had looked at the weather and the sun was due to stay until late afternoon Monday - should we check out if Jonah's had any availability that evening?
Car engine still running, we rang the hotel, and they did indeed have availability!
So we drove home, had breakfast, showered, wore Albie out, packed, and then hit the road up to Whale Beach.
So after dumping the bags in our room, we went back to the main hotel to have our drink in the last rays of the sun.
The receptionist who had checked us in had told us to go to the bar area and we would be given our drink. We went to the bar area and waited...and waited...feeling like lemons as waiters and staff walked past.
We weren't desperate for the drink at all, and were wondering wether to jack it in and go back to our room, when someone came and showed us to the small terrace area. We managed to grab the last seat, although it wasn't in the sun.
Then the little boy disappeared...and the father went to find him only to return and say, fondly; "Oh he was just in the carpark playing with the cars..."
Regarding the name, some thoughts are it came from Whaling, but others - and the one I'm going with - is the name comes from the shape of the peninsular:
Offered at no extra cost we wondered why anyone would want to go to the restaurant really. But maybe we are just antisocial first thing in the morning...
But it's nice to make the most of places on your doorstep. I often find once an area feels more familiar, the local places get overlooked. Hopefully not this time...
Oh, and yes the clouds rolled in in the afternoon, and it has been raining since - we definitely timed it right!!
