Got to admit Mr T some of them pics, correction all of the pics show some awesome cruising grounds. Can't wait to get up there for our jollies in August, looks good for a bit of snorkelling as well so I will be bringing my gear.

Well there must have been a Blue Moon on Tueday night as we as well you know beat the Tri-nations Champs. The only northern team to win against the southern teams. But as usual no mention on the 'BBC' ( sorry home counties broadcasting corp) of the win
