"fraser island"...2006

....5th - 13TH AUGUST 2006... .. ..... My annual trip to fraser island. The site was the same as last year 05, couldn't believe we were so lucky. But the same as 05 the wind was 30 kts from the south and forecast to get stronger. All hands required again to put up main tarp for the cooking station and general chat area and not to forget the card nites.... total number for the team this year was 19 and prospect of growing for 2007.
"bring it on".
2006 was a non event for fishing as the weather was just plain shit full .. winds to 40 kts with rain and HUGE seas
midday tides cancelled any plans to travel the beach, as the waves were up against the sand dunes cutting away banks all the way to indian head. Some of the "go fishing" team did make it up to waddy for a fish and scored half a dozen that were SMOKED for a snack the next day. I never took the rods off the 4x4. Regardless of the weather i enjoyed the week sitting back doing nothing. I lost my glasses and of course i was playing around with the camera and deleted the photos of the the first 4 days to the delight of some members as we had a visit from a group of female backpackers. I forgot to mention the weed ....
