Our Third Day of Vacation - Sunset Cruise

After leaving the beach we headed to Misery Bay to board the Lady Kate to take a Sunset Cruise which lasted for 1 1/2 hours. Mom, Jeff, the kids and I had a really enjoyable trip. While on this trip Jeff and I noticed our tour guide taking pictures of the Sunset and thought it rather peculiar as it would be something that he would see often. Just right before we were getting ready to get off the boat he informed us that this was his last Sunset Cruise and that after working on the boat for 7 years he would be taking another job.
