It wasn’t without excitement though!

I spotted these fishermen on the shore when I arrived and saw them bring in a big fish just as I was leaving. They didn’t know I was behind them and they were really excited – jumping up and down and using the F word prolifically. I think they were a bit embarrassed when I asked if I could take their photo :-).

We just got home before a big downpour of rain. Timed it perfectly.
