Busy, busy and busy; that is what is going on at the moment. There is heaps happening at work, just before Christmas, roads need to be finished, trucks are checked for their Certificate of Fitness and yeah, Iranium keeps me busy, too. I’m working full time at the moment, which is good, but, leaving little time and often little energy to do other things.
Yesterday, we knocked off work early, just after 1400, and went for a quick fish in the dinghy. By the time we were heading out, it was already 1600 and when I could sit down and eat my fish it was just past 2100. Just goes to show me that I need to prepare the boat and other things better. So that I can shoot out and shoot back in in no time… Need to work on that. Fishing was alright, we’re having easterly winds here for the last days, this means that Tryphena – where I’m based at – is calm as, while there are 2m swells on the East Coast (great for surfing). The fishing was okay, there was action all the time, albeit only from snapper 30-35 cm. I lost a snapper that would have been a delight, but my mate landed a 6-8 pound porae (not sure how it is spelled.) Anyway, I enjoyed three baked, whole snapper within the last 24 hours.
The solar power is working like a charm, managed to gather around 100 liters of rainwater on Sunday, and other than that, when I have got free time, I enjoy reading in my new Kindle. It’s a good little, handy device to have. Always there and ready when you feel like reading. So, I better get back to it. But here are a few pictures for you.
Here are a couple of pictures of my wind mill. Another project for some time later…
I’m preparing for the weekend, gathering up some top soil from around the area. I need to pick some weeds, mow the grass and start another garden patch.
