Ramadam Kareem….

Just back from an amazing trip to United Arab Emirates with some diving in Dibba, and Fujairah, sailing on a small Laser..and generally enjoying the joys of being in a hot dusty climate (I am Australian I do Like it hot) in close proximity to salty water and sea creatures.

Enjoyed wonderful fresh food from a variety of nations and the friendly hospitality of the Emirate culture which continues even when people are fasting…no sugar lows or grumpy faces, just smiles and good natured generosity…Thanks.

Flying away from my salt water friends was a little hard, so thanks to Etihad for upgrading me to a gorgeous business class seat and a wonderful end to a good flight over what felt like the entire Swiss/Italian & French alps at sunrise including a close up of Mont Blanc.

To start here are a few images of some dive friends and a simple video of some of the fun.

Best Regards
Kathleen

Your voice matters…2 days left to make a difference to Australia’s Marine Life.

I have dived in the Gulf of Oman, Arabian Gulf, and the Mediterranean Sea, and I have dived on the Great Barrier Reef and on Lord Howe Island.

The difference between areas that have been afforded long term protection and those that have been either drilled, over-fished or over-populated hits you in the face the moment you submerge on a dive.

Please help Australian Marine Life: wise multiple use is still possible but protected areas need to follow scientific guidelines.

Take 5 mins to add your own voice to what will be some of the most important decision making in Australia’s history.
