Well what can I say, two weeks in paradise, Thanks to both of you is a good start (you know who you are).
Paradise is an understatement I think, not only does the BVI look fantastic, the people are great, the food is great, the snorkelling is great and the sailing is great, did I mention the food? Shopping is not great, which is why I liked it so much, I hate shopping. Oh and the rum cocktails are to die for. Beaches are ok if not a little crowded, I mean check this one out.
We did have the odd day that reminded us of home. When the rain came it was torrential but only lasted a couple of minutes, not even worth getting out of the pool for.
Nights were cool and peaceful, the only problem I had was sleeping with all the doors open and the light of the moon keeping me awake.
Hope you all had a great weekend, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve sort of lost the enthusiasm of late, I still try and get out and shoot but it’s not things you want to see, the whole idea of starting this blog was to show you a side of the offshore industry you would not normally get to see, and that was always the positive side.
So now you are stuck with some of my travel shots instead, this was a cold, wet, miserable evening in Lerwick, (the capital and main port of the Shetland Islands), but even so, still a really nice place to visit.
A nice walk around the small fishing harbour, until I was drenched through.
Next posts will be from the Caribbean, yeah I know, but someone has to do it.
I’m back, another successful rig move under the belt, all went to plan and nobody got hurt. We towed the rig into Limassol in Cyprus where we moored it and left it for our last time.
We then joined this boat to go and recover a couple of anchors we had to leave behind, the idea was to recover these anchors in a different way due to assets on the seabed, this operation again all went to plan.
Once all anchors were recovered we headed back to Limassol, looks like someone has been having a bit of fun with the sea break.
I hope everyone has had a great Christmas and the hangovers aren’t to severe, I’m posting today because I’m off to work tomorrow and don’t know when I’ll be back, I hope you all have a great new year eve. I’ll post again in the new year.
