After indulging in some fish and chips for lunch, we met a couple of trawler fishermen. What colourful characters they turned out to be! During our conversation, we explained that we were looking for some fishing net to finish off an art project. Well this gained a bit of interest and before we knew it one of them was handing us a lovely sample of authentic fishing net.
It's amazing where and how life goes sometimes!
Curiosity got the better of me, so we decided to pop in and say hello ....... My darling had a prior meeting with Bruce not so long ago when one of his cows decided to escape and hang out too close to the road, fortunately it all ended well.
What an amazing life Bruce has had, fishing the Torres Strait, travelling the world and generally having a full happy life. After a very interesting chat to him about their life adventures, it was off to the shed to collect some more fishing net. That in itself was another treat! Old farm sheds are always full of cool stuff and in this case, we discovered that Bruce loves working with wood and had some awesome tables that he had built out of some of his timber slab collection ...... what a craftsman ........ which always makes you wonder what you may find 'under' all that stuff........ guess that's to be left for another day.
What had already been a great afternoon turned into an even greater adventure! I look forward to returning there again, it moments like these that leave a permanent imprint in your mind which always brings a smile to your face.
I live for days like these!
