Strong winds & stormy sea.

Two hours after leaving Kaka point we were hit by a Southerly storm and had to make an unexpected crash landing on the beach near Wangaloa. Local farmers offered us the use of their caravan to shelter from the storm, along with food and blankets to keep warm. We would like to thank local people Luke & Nakita, and Tim & Marina for the hospitallity they showed us. Didn't sleep all that well as the southerly wind blew strongly throughout the night and we hope for a better day tomorrow.
