J went for a long walk along the beach and fell in a hole of soft sand, almost losing his stick in the water. A friendly couple came to his rescue. They turned out to be the owners of the Aiyana Retreat, having a morning off from their work.

On Saturday evening we had booked to have dinner at the best restaurant in Denmark: Kirby's at Rickety Gate. When I looked at the map, I discovered it was a half hour's drive along Mt Shadforth Rd, so I couldn't indulge too much with the wine! The food was perfect, however! We had the set degustation menu for $85, which they only offer on the first Saturday of the month. There was a selection of entrees on a tasting plate, followed by a main of pork belly for me and lamb for J. Dessert was Creme brûlée. The red wine, a Cabernet with their own label, was the best I've had in a long time, and we left some in the bottle to enjoy next day.
