Hey, nice photo! I'm gonna be in Australia in October. Would you recommend Hook Island? - we were thinking about staying at either the resort or the campsite, or the national park campsite. Is the island quiet and with good snorkelling, or are there better place?! Thanks for any advice you can give,
Hi Nawitka, Good job!!! :0)
Greetings, ღ M.
Yes - I noticed that nice rear (on the boat, he chuckles) on the shot where you were backing her into a berth - Wonderful! I remember my first few times crewing. I can relate - I'm still surprised I made it past that first week! I trained on 'nutshells' for a while, and then graduated to 'albacores' before crewing on that Douglas. It wasn't a light-wind boat, though. My most exciting moment was when we broached badly while flying a large radial head spinaker. we went right sideways with the rudder out of the water and wer dragged along until the wind bent in half the spinaker boom on the front stay! We let go the sheets and had to bring her in. I'll never forget it though!!
Yes you are of course correct! but the people in the west might not realise that shopping in this part of China is done daily!
I did not use the shop myself but had many meals in the cafe from where the photo was taken! and even though they spoke no English and I speak no Chinese We made friends!
I enjoyed every minute of my stay in Haudu! I would very much like to come back and see the many friends I have made!
Very nice mate.
