"First question of the trip: what did we especially want to see or do? Rod knows the area with its flora, fauna and coastal waters like the back of his hand, as he grew up in the area. He is also obviously very much in love with the place and proud to show off its beauties to folks like us.
Our comment back was 'beautiful scenery, birds, and animals; we want to take lots of photos'.
He did not disappoint."
