We came across the Ark, at Pearly beach as we awaited the rain coming in from the north. It was well situated, high and dry in very prominent position, with easy access to the beach, and it's 'launch site', if things got tricky - and the loading of the Whales that were visibly frolicking in the bay. We stayed in the oystercatcher room, which was stone built (instead of gopher wood) and it had all the amenities required for a very pleasant and comfortable stay. It only had one deck (instead of three as designated in Geneses) and built slightly smaller than 300 cubits long, to conform to the local planning regulations, however it did have an entrance on the side. Noah and. Emzara (cunningly discussed as Steve and Lee), run a tight ship, and as we say in the west country, it was Shipshape and Bristol fashion. Nothing was too much trouble, and our stay, albeit brief, was a wonderful one. P.S. we 'left' a small bear with them 'Ursidae Teddy Bearicus', unfortunately he missed his mummy, and upset the equilibrium of the 'two only rule', therefore he carefully bubble wrapped and reunited with his owner in Cape Town. A service second to none.
