On the 2nd Feb we had another nice breakfast and relaxing morning and then took the car out to visit Oysters R Us, where we would indulge in an oyster eating frenzy. In a humble but also edgy and cool setting, the friendly staff again go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy the experience. They have their oyster tanks which sustain the locally caught shellfish, but not only this, there is also a well stocked fridge willed with tapenades, pates, condiments and more. You grab what you want and they'll add it up on the till. Once you're sat with your nibbles you can order your bubbles, wine or beer and they'll also take your oyster order. We naively went with four each, and later got another four. The oysters were large and plump and even had a delightful creamy taste which is apparently the case during the summer season. During winter they are more briny and salty but they are available all year round. The oysters come with a fine selection of condiments including lemon wedges, black pepper, Tabasco, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce (and picked ginger), French onion vinaigrette, horse radish and tartar sauce so you just need to decide which style you would prefer. It's an absolute must for any oyster lover if you visit here.

On Friday 3rd Feb we packed up and headed to the Eden Adventures office to rent a canoe. We paddled for 40 mins or so along the Kaaimans River with just the sounds of birdsong and the lapping of the ripples against the boat (plus whatever noise we made when we were paddling of course). We saw various birdlife, especially Kingfishers that could be quite loud when they wanted to be!
