Hi all,

another post from paradise, even if our way back was close there were still some activities at monday, when most of us had to say "Good bye Hamilton Island...!" sad.gif

[linked image]
Before Asi left Hamilton Island, I had to take a photo of his JLC (that's the OT part of this posting wink.gif) - what a stunning piece!

Hammer time - all in!

[linked image]
Some frogmen returned from their "snorkeling mission" on catseye beach.

[linked image]
Time ran so fast and not soon later, we were having our last dinner, PAM80 included. I saw it only one time before at the Portofino boutique years ago. Jumping seconds Panerai, defo a rare bird...!

Hagen, Shella's sister, Shella itself, Hagen's wife and Kerwin.

The Hammer family.

[linked image]
Gush and Hammer were sending some serious picture greetings to Covac happy.gif

[linked image]
Tuesday. One last view to the catseye beach before checkout... gonna miss it for sure sad.gif

[linked image]
...before this bird brought us back safely to Brisbane.

[linked image]
Performed "highway to the danger zone" - LOL - and arrived at Hammer's place.

[linked image]
...erm... okay! happy.gif

[linked image]
Matching cookies!

[linked image]
Kids were happy and had a great time...

[linked image]
...while BBQ was prepared. Solid food soon to come! Yummi!

[linked image]
Meanwhile in Hammer's place, Gary gave us "the watchmaker in shorts".

[linked image]
We had some snacks and drinks as well and soon later, Jose, Shella and her sister arrived to join the BBQ as well.

[linked image]
"Just a little plate" - OMG! Chicken, sausages, steak and ...kangaroo!

[linked image]
...yummi - kangaroo tasted well, youbet!

[linked image]
Winston came to Hammer's place as well. The party seemed to never stop happy.gif

[linked image]
Even Darth Vader was there ....S C A R Y ! LMAO

[linked image]
Baxter was thrilled...!

[linked image]
Got some chocolates from Bernie for dessert, which soon later dissapeared...

[linked image]
"tastes AWESOME" happy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gif

[linked image]
"want some more?"

[linked image]
...nearly all gone! Gary and Dee - who got the last one?

[linked image]
After the BBQ we went to Hammer's workshop for getting a little tour. Needless to say, I think Umberto did a great job on my 6152/1 - still pretty accurate.

[linked image]
Gary and Winston - thumbs up for another great evening down under.

[linked image]
Hammer found a good place for his latest collectible piece which I muled down under on my trip.

We had another great day, youbet. The hospitality by Hammer and his family at their place was just outstanding.

Thanks for looking so far and stay tuned for 10.9

What fantastic posts, I feel as though I have been with you all on this journey to the upside down world.
Great seeing everybody enjoying the trips & nice to see Alan and helpers putting on a fantastic show.
I nearly met Alan in 2005 but feel I have done now with Gush's 3646.

Best to all

Graham
