Getting down from the ship onto the rocking platform then up into the tender judging the right wave was a lot of fun.

Always a helping hand closeby for someone struggling either with up or in this case down. Note the wall to the right of the photo.

For fun at sea why not climb a rocking cliff face. All were roped in case the descent was quicker than intended.

Okay. Where to now?

Not on board but still there are steps. I just liked the colour of sea and sky.

Not only do people need to move up and down – so do the tenders.

Watching the procedure I certainly hoped we would never have to do it at speed in an emergency.

A novel way of getting only slightly down.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  2. I have cruised but not yet stopped at a port where we needed to tender. It’s an interesting procedure but I definitely don’t fancy the flying fox method of transport.

  3. I’ve never cruised which made this all the more interesting! Sounds like fun.
