Tense Moments

Things are tensing up - not because the South Africans lost to Pakistan in the 20/20 cricket but the fact that our microlight is stuck at customs. For the last 3 weeks. And it still needs to get to the factory for the much needed repairs after last years wipe out. Yes folks, we have not been advertising the story (since it actually is going to make a good second book ;-) but after thousands of hours of flying we did prang the little orange plane. Thankfully other than a broken little finger and hurt pride I walked away just fine. (Of course I wont give away the story here! ;-)

But we need to get our plane cleared (customs is tricky since it is for re-exporting) so we can get it back to Seychelles and ready for the season. Anybody have contacts at customs? :-)

Just two and a half months to go and it is tropical Island and whale shark time!

Well, lets try again. After writting a great blog I somehow pushed or cliked on something i shouldnt have and it has all dissapeared. It is now drifting somewhere in the information ether...

I have just completed my book, 'Wings and Whale Sharks'. It has been a few years of hard work but looking at it I can't help but feel a bit of pride. It has been my baby for a long time. It is hard to believe that the next whale shark season is upon us. In just three months we are heading out to the lovely Islands of Seychelles for some more observations of these large spotty creatures. I hope you have booked your place. If not then do so now. Go check out Loads of info about the Marine Conservation Society of Seychelles and how you can get into the water with these large but placid fish.

Also for those interested in my book, check out It will give you a good blurp of the ins and outs of the book. You can place a pre-release order there or just send me an email. Try I promise to get back to you and keep you posted.
