Hey Lionel, long time no talk. Hope all is well.

3rd pic, just below and left of the chopper is us bobbing around. Was down there with the ski club doing a race in between the boat races & got roped into being course marshalls.

Like the pics, & like those engines. I wonder if they'd miss one ? :)

Hi Art, all is not well I've had a stroke spent 6 months in hospital no drivers licence but I feel ok. I went up to my sons wedding in a wheelchair with a P&S camera and forgot how to use it, took a photo fo the ground. It's all coming back now. Don't know if I'll ever drive again but I'll never give up. I love the sound those big boats make.

Geez, that's no good Lionel. Take care.

If you're stuck getting out somewhere to take a few photos, give me a yell.
