The Melbourne Cup extended weekend was the opportunity to visit Take It Easy in Queensland one last time before the big exodus south next month. For this five day float around the Keppel Isles with friends Waz and Lisa, the program included fishing, snorkeling, some sailing, beach combing, great meals and wines, lots of laughs and lazing around in the sunshine. We even caught up with a few yachtie friends and acquaintances! The cruising world is indeed a small world.
The new Olympus TG4 Camera and Fisheye wet lens were put to good use. We need a little more practice to get well lit and well focused shots, but it will come. Oh, and one bit of advice for those playing with an underwater camera: always do a check of all the locks before jumping into the water so you don’t flood it! Yes, guess who is getting another camera? We just have to be thankful it was not the expensive SLR. Won’t forget next time!
Yet again, this escapade confirmed how nice it is to share our passion and beloved boatie with friends.
For the first time, we have a video to share with you. Lisa put this together from various clips and photos we took. Just click on the “Take It Easy Peasy” link. We will have to get into the habit of doing more of these… So much to learn!
Here is a gallery with a few images too. As always, click on the first photo to display in full screen slideshow.
