As is now appearing customary, I start with an apology for the delay on things. Work is getting really exciting – loads and loads and loads of stuff on, and with the world as it is at the moment I can’t grumble for a second. There are thousands without jobs, so the fact that mine is depriving me of a privilege like ‘blogging time’ can’t be a bad thing.
So, a quick update. My cousin Den came out to visit us last week, which was awesome. We got some dives in that made me wish I could take my camera with me…but having already spent well over $3k this year on the camera, I thought an underwater housing would be the nail in the coffin with my very-understanding, but-only-human-after-all wife. We dove (dived?) the Stavronikita, or Stav to the locals, and it really was up there in my top 5 dives of all time…
Den also insisted that we go sea fishing. This is something I have always wanted to do, but we never get around to doing it. One of the best things about having motivated guests is that we actually have to wander off resort (shock horror!) every now and then to go and do touristy stuff. I will blog about the sport fishing properly soon, but in the meantime here are a few snaps of Den’s big catch. A beautiful ‘Wahoo’
By the end of the week, we were all pretty knackered. Work had been busy, and Den was keen to get as much in as possible. On the last night of his stay we were treated to a beautiful sunset and it only seemed right to have a lazy game of catch whilst we were bathed in the beautiful soft light of magic hour.
Thanks for a blast Den – I have finally caught up with my sleep now! Oh – and the pictures we took of the moon that night down at Fowl Bay…I was pretty happy with the final result – hope you like it too! 😉
