I headed to Surat Bay to have a look at the "gauranteed" Sea Lions that were supposed to be there. Unfortunately, they weren't around for me that day. There were however, plenty of Sea Lion shaped clumps of seaweed scattered along the beach that, from a distance, were definitely moving and worth taking a closer look at!
After walking for two hours longer than I was planning, and confirming all the seaweed was seaweed, I gave up on the Sea Lions for that day and headed back to my van and to that night's camp site. Where I ended up setting up camp only a few hundred meters from 15 huge Sea Lions!
