Big weekend..... again...

Travelled from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast again for our monthly weekend duty with the Caloundra Flotilla of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard. Our precious charges came with us, Merlin and Charlie. They travel so well in the car, they're amazing.

Saturday morning's training was spectacular with a couple of whales and a pod of dolphins sharing their playground with us. We both got time on the helm which is great fun. Sunday we went through towing training but in the afternoon as we went down Pumistone Passage to continue our training we did two recoveries of boats that had grounded themselves on the sandbanks and needed towing. Nothing like the real thing!

Back to the Gold Coast Monday with both of us pretty exhausted and treats for the well behaved boys ❀️

Leanne and I had Coast Guard duty over the weekend and while Saturday was a beautiful Sunshine Coast day, Sunday got a bit windy. We did two assists for boaters on the Sunday, one right after the other with one boat having an engine failure and the other run aground on a sand bank. ... See MoreSee Less

Meet Charlie and Merlin

We're doing a 6 week pet sit on the Gold Coast caring for Charlie a 4 year old Golden Retriever and his brother Merlin a 4 year old Border Collie. We were told that Charlie would be friendly but have been overwhelmed by just how loving he has been. He just loves his snuggles. Merlin, we were told, would be standoffish. But he has been very loving and seeking his cuddles too. The two fish (Bait and Tackle, not their real names) however, continue to ignore us πŸ₯΄

Having a blast enjoying finally having time with some four legged furry friends. ❀️
