Home > Ocean Grove > Kaboom!


We’re heading off into the bush again for a week or so from Monday AM and probably back at the weekend if we don’t get lost. 

We had our last long walk with Tanya yesterday and she flies our for Nepal via Singapore tonight.  Also, MPS and Chris leave for Turkey and Greece tonight so begs the question what are we doing going bush in Victoria and not winging it away OS somewhere.  New Zealand and China planned for next year so better not whinge too much.

A warship is being sunk off Ocean Grove tomorrow morning.  No, the Yanks haven’t declared war on us yet but one of our old frigates, the HMAS Canberra, is having it’s bum blown out as a dive wreck which I’m sure would please Peggy.  There is a stack of wrecks of one kind or another along this coast which is somewhat of a divers paradise.

I just nipped down to have a gander and the local lookout car park was packed so goodness knows what it’s going to be like tomorrow. 

Will keep you informed.

    If we ever get to your corner of the world I would love (weather permitting) to dive that wreck! Diving in Australia is on our list of things to do. As luck would have it, the good diving seems to be near you and our cousin. I think there is some sort of law that states every family in the UK must have at least one relly in AU or NZ.

    Peggy – What do you mean “weather permitting”. I’ve seen you dive in water that must be near freezing!

    About the rellies, well you did use us as a dumping ground for all your riff raff for years!

    We drag our old relics out into the desert, they sit out there forever because we don’t get enough rain to rust metal.

    AZ – Great place to store planes from what I gather.
