First things first.  We visited the National Australian Bank to tell them to expect John’s new card.  Also, we asked if we could use their fax machine to confirm the instructions.  A wonderfully helpful teller not only agreed to send our fax, but also gave us a couple of sheets of headed writing paper to write it on.  (She didn’t even charge us for the call!)

That sorted, we set out to find Dive Ski & Surf in Subacio to organise our Advanced Open Water scuba training. Morry, our divemaster from Exmouth, had recommended this particular dive shop to us.  It turned out that the owner was his father!  John was still a little concerned about his ability to equalise, so the shop recommended a specialist doctor down the road.

After a satisfactory visit to the doctor, and a bite to eat, we headed south to Margaret River and the annual Wine Festival.
