Digiboat's "Product Testing"
Sat 19 Mar 2011 09:04
Surf victims arrived late from Mataram, Lombok. Andy, Fraser (Andy's hot-shot surfer son), Troy and Paul (Wiley).
Andy was only guest I was previously acquainted with, but of course, Sydney having a population of about 16 resulted in me knowing another of the guests and having too many common friends and interests with the lot! Wiley lives on a boat in Pittwater - my "home" when home!
Steve, local Pommie ex-pat from Gili, will join us as a local guide, with another mate of his. Steve's a former yacht captain and local surfer.
First night dinner at The Beach House, next day spent at Gili waiting for my Ship's Papers to return from Bali. Small surf on reef at south end of Gili, so a few of them got wet immediately.
Second night dinner at Ko-ko-mo Restaurant - Fine Dining on the water's edge. Turned into quite a debauched night with Wiley skinny dipping (actually trying to drown himself after being rejected by a couple of tourist girls) right off the restaurant. Too many alcohols and too many hours as I tried to keep up with them until 5:30am as I had the keys to the Duck!
So over-hung and off we go. Plan to check Desert Pt on way ...
