I feel like a fish in the water. Literally and figuratively.

Literally, because I’ve been spending more time underwater than on the ground. The waterhousing in one hand, and my eyes wide opened.

Figuratively, because the bush, the 4wd tracks, whether it is soft sand, rocks or corrugated, give you access to the real outback. The outback where you feel remote, alone, disconnected from the World (literally. Hence why I could not send an up-date yesterday).

I’ve had a very very close (too close) encounter with a Manta Ray, who thought that it was a good idea to give me a hug. But have you ever tried to hug a giant piece of sand paper ? Well, that’s what our friend the Manta feels like. My knees still bear the marks of this intimate moment.

Have a great day. Last one for the week for a lot of you. Yew !
