    Thanks, Dave, and thank YOU for a great day. Quite apart from seeing so many beautiful places, your tour gave us a number of new experiences which may seem small but really meant a lot to us. Neither of us had gone by a 4×4 before (great fun) nor picked mussels (pippies?) on a beach, for instance, and ever since I heard about tee tree lakes almost twenty years ago, I had always wanted to have a swim in one.
    On our way back to B’bane, we more or less decided that we will return to Straddie at the end of our time here and spend a day whale-watching — or just looking out at the water — at Point Lookout, so yes, please keep us updated.
    Sincerely,

    Stefan
