Set the alarm early today and rugged up to go to the ANZAC dawn service. Such a beautiful morning although way too religous service for my liking.

Lest we forget...

Since I got up this early I might as well make the most of it even though I was still half asleep.

Some boat masts...

This, however is a really cool pano of the Tamar River with Ben Lomond in the background covered in cloud.

Customs House...

Just missed this but 30 seconds before there was a perfect silver lining. Should be a good day.

Bugger! That hairline crack finally turned into something a bit more drastic today.

The pictures will tell the story better than I ever will, needless to say the noises coming out of this club before and after it happened were getting a little strange. Still hit the ball quite nice even with this little scratch.

I wonder if it'll polish out?

Congrats to Dave

Congrats dude...

It was Awesome to see you out on the course giving it a crack.

As for deleting the 1 and only photo of you taken all day... Inexcusable I say!


Golf Day!

Since we were having blackouts all morning and I lost a bunch of work that hadnt been saved (Doh!) a few of us decided to make the most of our lack of electricity and go outside. Shock and Horror! So Phill, Matt and the contents of the B.A.D (Me, Az and Dave) headed out for a lovely round of 9. We have to make the most of such weather.

Me heading onto the green for 2 on the first, Yeah Baby (we wont mention the 3 putt for 5, one of 7 or so 3 putts, grrrr)

Moroney using the ol Texas Wedge...

Az lining up for the third...

Matty going swimming, again... (actually it was Azza's ball but the truth should never get in the way of a good yarn.)

Phill lining up for the second green...

Az trying his best to dry the ball out on the third...

Phill on his way to his first ever Par, Congrats dude !!!

So nice and lush at the moment...

My golf club limousine...

Now all I had to do was put the ball...

Into this hole to clean Moroney out of $4... What happened?

RCS (Random Cool Stuff)

Hi all. Just thought i'd put up some more random photos from last weekend. Been fiddling around a bit on Photoshop and some of the results come out really cool.


Dove Lake...

Looking back down Cradle...

Coles Bay from Amos...

Buggered on the way to Wineglass, cool cave though...

Bicheno Part 3, Wineglass Bay

After a windblown night which woke all of us up at some point due to the fact that our accomodation felt like moving without our permission, we woke to conquer Mt Amos and Wineglass Bay.

Mt Amos is on the left, 450 vertical metre ascent in not very far made for a very steep climb at parts. To get to Wineglass you walk through the saddle which is only 200 vertical but still a long way up.

A small panoramic of the slickrock we had to climb. It has the most amazing patterns from where all the water runs down and polishes the surface. The light parts are very smooth while the dark were incredibly rough and grippy. Found that out pretty quickly walking up the steep sections.

One of many breaks on the way up.

Benny ingesting some hangover prevention juice. It was actually quite warm and we needed to drink a fair bit to keep on top of things.

Selfies with SLR's are a tricky business...

How cool is this, the rock looks like an eagle.

Made it! Wineglass in the background. I didn't want to leave this spot. It would be so cool to camp up there one night and watch the sunrise.

Not the best but it really gives you a good idea of the view. You'll probably need to click on the picture to see it in any real detail.

The view to the Coles Bay side of things and the scary descent back down. Some parts were pretty bloody sketchy. This looks steep in the picture and photo's always flatten things out.

After the descent we headed through the saddle to Wineglass. This place is absolutly superb. The water is just so pristine. The people with the yacht have the right idea.

A bit of the heavy duty industrial kelp they have around here. Surely this stuff could be used for leather of some sort. Its so tough.

Benny swimming (as promised) in the water. He suggested that the water may have been a little "on the cold side".

Junior... (We think he was slightly knackered in this picture)

This little bugger scared the crap out of me as we were running back down the trail. He was munching away on the side of the trail and I didn't notice him until I practically trod on him. He never budged so I got this pic nice and close. Awesome!

Bicheno Part 2

After picking up the roof racks and tying them down (sort of) we headed south to Coles Bay via Friendly Beach (see part 1). We pulled into the campground at Freycinet National Park and had on record the crappest, most expensive, most pathetic fish and chips that had the flavour of belly button lint. If you ever go to Freycinet, word of advice, get the pizza (it cant possibly be any worse).

After dinner we all headed down to the beach, esky in hand to enjoy a few quiet sherberts on the beach.

Here's Coles Bay turning it on after sundown.

Super Smackdown with the flash...

1) "Here take a photo of this"... he says...

2) "Ouch ok! stop it! Thats too bloody bright!!!"

3) "Aarrgghh make it stop, it burns!!!"

More crazy wildlife...

Drink, *cough* drink *cough* "I'll get there!"


Benny's 'Shangri-La' after a catastrophic structural failure, he still slept in it. There goes his Kombi cherry...
