Cruisey Outdoor Ways to move up and Down : Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

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.

  1. Found the storing of the tenders interesting. Nice post. Thank you for an insiders glimpse of the cruise. Looks like you had quite an adventure.

  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.
