29 January 2015 - BLEH!

Give us a break now ...... enough of the winds already!!!

Wow. We have never experienced this much wind over such a length of time. It sure hurts business (and slap in the middle of high season too!), but worse is the disappointment on the faces of guests when we tell them tours are cancelled - that leaves a really bad taste in the mouth.

Today was especially hard - three beautiful ladies who had booked over 6 months ago - gran, daughter and granddaughter - bubbling over with excitement at meeting the stingrays. How hard it was for Captain Mario to tell them it was not going to happen.

The winds had been howling all night and we had hoped against hope that it would all have cleared up by morning. NOT! It was tough, but at the 12th hour, Captain Mario knew it was safest to cancel, and his decision was proven sound when the Marine Police also closed the sandbar.

The next 24-48 hours doesn't look too much better, so we can only hang in and hold thumbs. Them stingrays are going to be real hungry when we see them again!

Stuck on land ... but hey, could be worse .... could be stuck in snow!
