We are closing the THYME OUT CAFE for the 4 days but i still got to work on the monday but if all goes to plan we will be out fishing for 1 if not 2 days (one can only hope) and might even have a bit of a dive. as far as presents goes, a new 4x4 (not likely) not really wanting anything , just a couple of days off to relax with the family

We're off to Leeman

Sun, 2009-12-06 14:51

next Sunday 13th, do a bit of cleaning up (van gets sooo dusty) get the cray pots out ready to put in hopefully the weather is fine after the 15th Dec, fishing and relaxing until the 24th December back to Perth for Xmas lunch then Boxing Day back up to Leeman till we get sick of doing fishing or it gets to hot to do anything.  Like a few of you Oz lotto is $40 million this Tuesday, don't mind sharing, $10 million will do us, my Xmas present to old fart a cordless drill and hopefully better health for 2010, me win lotto so we can relocate to Carnarvon and buy my F250 7litre turbo diesel, with a fifth wheeler, dreaming of course of winning lotto.  As they say one power ball

No real plan as yet

Sun, 2009-12-06 17:03

Off from Dec 18 to Jan 10th. First thing I need is a good rest. Plans could include a few days around Dongara, maybe even head to Kalbarri area, or I may get conned into heading south. We are content to play at as it happens so to speak this year. If that means sitting around the pool for a few weeks here so be it.

Xmas proper starts at our place in a couple of weeks with a few of the old buggers from here getting together for my prized standing rack of beef and lots of wine.

I am still out to lunch so to speak as far as my prime Xmas pressie goes... I am looking at a reel of some description I think. Something for the beach that comes with a couple of spools so I can switch to lighter/heavier/lighter as the need arises and not have the need to carry a million rods with me when I go.

Staying up in Exxy this year and doing some big blue fishing hopefully, then Coral Bay for new years.  Should be a good one, just hope the big fish are hungry, has been a while since I wet a line locally.
