How to extend the summer vacation

This was the annual routine of notshaving over the break - because you don't have to shave when you are on holiday...


An Epic bloke, sitting in his garden, pondering the last vestiges of the summer growth :-) BTW that's my vice right there in the background.

Epic Christmas, Epic New Year

Posing with beer, Epic Pale Ale to be exact.

Well it goes like this... Christmas time I went out fishing and caught some nice snapper which I baked for Christmas Dinner, requiring me to stay appropriately lubricated in the kitchen.

I had to remove the tails to get them in the baking dish.

A great day had by all.

Then we managed to get away on the boat for a couple of days, spending New Years eve at the bottom of Waiheke at Man-O-War Bay. At the small trench at the north end of the bay I picked up 3 lovely snapper, before both rods went crazy together as we hooked into a Mako. I decided to stop fishing for the day, and NOT go for a swim. Still, company was very good, and we saw in the New Year in a sky of anchor lights and fireworks. After a trip New Years Day across to Coromandel Harbour we settled at Home Bay, Motutapu.

Epic Boating - reward at the end of the trip.
