I had a very cool morning this morning. Went for a scuba dive for crays with mates Rod, Linz and Hans and after that successful mission, Hans and I kitted up and headed out to the Long Reach Swim throughs.
It was Han’s first time at the swim throughs and being a Viking with Gills he nailed it!
The last one, was the big cathedral cave outside the green marker which was a test for the both of us, even cutting it into 2 sections and taking the half way stop it found us both very happy to finally get that air back into the lungs.
The initial swim with the sting ray was a nice way to warm up as well.
Now off to the Rotto fireworks in a while!
We had our last day for 2016 at Echo Yachts today, finishing off with a bit of a salsa dance and a visit from Santa.
All the best to everyone over the Xmas break from the Echo team.
The boys rolled and lifted a large 16 tonne module into place last week, which means the vessel is now really taking shape with only a few more bow modules to go to complete the aluminium major components.
We still have most of next year to go with this yacht project, so it is quite a marathon, but a very enjoyable one!
I went down to Bicton last night and ended up watching a very active cattle dog doing his stuff.
He seemed to have appointed himself as the area watch dog and made sure he chased every seagull within swimming distance with vigour.
Once the sea gulls were sorted he engaged in a game of catch the stick with a little girl for a while, but then of course one of those pesky seagulls needed some chasing again.
A nice way to see the day out for sure.
Going through a few images today of the images shot on True North in west Papua recently and found this little gem lurking.
A beautiful little community with its own central island surrounded by sand.
I was asked to do a drone fly at the Australian Marine Complex today and had beautiful conditions for the fly.
This is what the view from the Phantom 4 looked like!
