Oh God, that's beautiful Andy. I gotta get down there. By the way, I just noticed for the first time, your kind offer of the boat. I really appreciate it Andy, but honestly I could not do it. I'd be so afraid of doing something wrong, I would find it hard to relax. I think I'd be more relaxed just hiring one, but thanks again for the offer, all the same.

Andy....I think this was Peter's way of indicating that a "fridge full of beer" was not part of the offer.

No beer = no help. But.... since it appears that you've got the issue licked I guess I'll have to lay in some beer of my own.

And it works.
Now a guess where the pics were taken.
Smiths Creek? Except for the house, maybe in Berowra Waters ?

Set 4 are lovely pics capturing the Hawkesbury River/Broken Bay, thanks Andy. Midweek with few boats, so tranquil, quiet, even reminds me of Doubtful Sound in NZ. Some of the narrow fingers of water, with steep cliffs either side, are 18meters/40ft + deep. Indeed a great place for a ramble, the days fly past.

A couple of weeks on.

These were taken on a hot ,windy couple of days. At the end of a bay I came across this amazing boat. Some others I took from following a creek as far as I could, by kayak. The last photo was coming around the headland in a windy cross sea,rescued the duck as she was heading for NZ, that was fun.

The boat now has its own watch duck!

There are some people on this Forum that assume that the boat's refrigerator should always be at full beer capacity.

Cute duck Andy. Not sure I want one resident onboard unless it`s toilet trained.
Talking of strong westerly winds, yesterday was a day of high bush(forest) fire alert here. Probably 200 homes lost, some loss of life, last night over 90 fires burning, 30 plus out of control, across numerous parts of the state. Probably the worst fire day in 10 years. We are immediately east of 40 acres of natural bush, on alert all day just in case, there is a risk of ember attack from distant fires, although we are 8km from the centre of Sydney, which was inundated with smoke. Today we give thanks to the fire personnel, especially the many volunteers who risk themselves and take time off work to help others.

Al (extreme left) often has a beer near at hand. (Didn't know my elbows, the fellow in the dark blue shirt, were so ugly.) Meanwhile, Matt looks amused. Thankfully, we aren't underway, but instead parked at the Pittsburg marina.

Sounds horrific, Bruce. Hope you and yours are safe and sound.

Mark,

First, that's the first time anyone has attempted to describe me as "extreme left".

Second, I try to remain well hydrated since you never know how long it might be before a drink comes your way. No doubt BruceK is feeling much the same right now. I just pray he has beer nearby. (cheers, Brucek!)

Mark, I don't know how to tell you this but that's not a boat, it's a horse(or two).

Let me guess, after your cannon episode your home land security people confiscated your boat and gave you a horse, which you promptly named 'You Coot'!(because it would not go near water)

Bruce, yes I was around West head yesterday(America's Bay) and the boat was covered in ash & smoke, with the high winds thrown in, not good. It's worrying that this is happening so early in the season.There's an awful lot of dry bush out there, let's hope for some rain.Pity the poor buggers up in the Blue Mountains.

By the way the duck is not house trained, but being wooden I didn't think that would be a problem.

Not so Heal...now don't be a stirrer. In fact I'm not a beer person. My sons (and others) look at me pityingly when we are out at say some Bavarian Restaurant awash with exotic beers and I just order my usual Hahn Premium Light. And I really only enjoy that when really thirsty...

I'm sitting on the horse "Ace." The animal in the background is a mule. Photo taken in the High Sierra in 2002.
