A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
Well it is some sea miles ago that I last wrote so for a bit of an update as to what we have been up to.
For New Year we took my brother John and his lovely wife Noelene out to Cape Kidnappers for a fishing trip for the night. And yes we ate fish. John did very well. We also set the Cray pot again and YES this time we struck lucky – well kind of – 15 in the pot but only 2 were the correct size. We decide to put it down again with the two correct size ones in and bring it up for lunch with hopefully more inside. What’s that saying – when all’s going well don’t chance it differently. Went back to get our lunch and Alec ran over the Cray buoy cutting it from the rope!!! So lunch was stuck on the bottom. There was no way we could get it which concluded in another trip out to Cape Kidnappers a couple of days later with a diver to retrieve it. He did and it had another 4 crays in it BUT they had all been eaten by octopus!!. Least we had the pot back and we did catch more fish.
OK one and all this is all from the Admiral and the Captain for the time being.
Lots of love
Ann and Alec
