Weigh anchor!

These gentlemen are deck hands on one of the boats moored on the reef in front of my place. They were weighing up anchor when I snapped them. One of these guys is in my diving course and I now know why he is so much fitter than I am. Maybe I need to swim out and do some "anchor work" each morning?? Might be more effective than my exercise bike!!!!

Strapping lads indeed! Great photo. What a life. Glad M.B sorted out the Jules thing for Marie. I have a girlfriend whose nickname is jewels - her name is Julie-Anne and she loves jewellry too (don't we all). I have a nickname but it isn't polite to put it here. It does refer to some "tiny bits" of the anatomy however. M.B has a wicked sense of humour.

Mme Benaut - guess what - My name is also Julie Anne.
My mind is racing on what your nickname could be - I won't be able to sleep trying to work it out!!!!

Beautiful photo. I exercise a lot too. Have a nice day.

Great shot Jules, captures the steely determination and concentration brilliantly.

I guess it rhymes with tiny bits !!!

I think I should work as a deck-hand in PNG. Those chaps look very fit and healthy.

what's an exercise bike?

Jules said...

Mandy - it may sound strange but it is a bike set up on a frame with one wheel. You sit on it and pedal like crazy and go nowhere but supposedly get fit - you see them in gyms.
