Today we got up leisurely and after exploring the house grounds, we wandered down to the Lighthouse boardwalk. Here we searched the rock pools for yellow sea stars, blue octopus, shrimps and shore crabs. We were all fairly rubbish at spotting these elusive creatures except Jason who seemed to be able to pluck giant specimens from where there appeared to be no life. He amused himself trying to goad the sea stars eat each other by laying them on top of one another. After a breezy climb across the rocks we headed on to lunch at T'Gallant, one of the regions vineyards and an excellent place for lunch. The place was heaving but we were kindly offered a table by a leaving group. We were joined by Ant's parents and we treated them to say thank you for having us to stay.
We headed back to Melbourne, where Zoe and I got dropped off at Chapel Street to meet a friend I met in New Zealand. Knowing he's gay and immaculately dressed, I'd asked him whether I'd pass in board (surf) shorts and thongs (flip flops) and he'd left it to my discretion. Walking into this weekday-straight Sunday-gay bar I realised I'd been mistaken as we were gazed upon by lots of gorgeous, tanned hunks sashaying and air-kissing each other. Fortunately Barry and his friends didn't seem to mind our trashbag attire and we enjoyed a fun afternoon meeting his friends.
