FRANCE | Tuesday, 6 July 2010 | Views [267]

Monday 5th July

Weekend was pretty eventful and relaxing knowing that I had a weeks work lined up!

Went out in Antibes both nights, both were goo nights, busy as usual and spent the days lazing around the beach. Had a sweet bbq with a group of kiwi guys and some of my flattys which was all good, that was saturday night so we took some beers down and made a night of it! sunday was spent lying on the beach soaking it up!

Moved into the crew house on sunday night since we had to move out of out apartment. Its all good, bit more expensive but air con room which is key! Started work this morning at 8am and spent the day sanding and grinding some hatches on the boat Sirona. quite cruisy and so stoked with it because even the crew lunch was probably the best meal ive eaten in France!! crew quarters are sick! and the food is amazing. I was the last one sitting around the mess making the most of it. Bring on tomorrow lunch! got this job till friday I think, dont think its anything permanent but still get some coin. Also may have lined up work for fri, sat and sun on Pelorus along with heaps of other dayworkers! its a 110m yacht, just day work but be good on the CV having a huge yacht on there! well see how it pans out! went for a swim today on way home from the dock, was covered in dust etc. Got stung by a jellyfish which damn well hurt. Had to quickly swim to where we had our bbq on the rocks the other night and had to squeeze out a piss. not the best feeling having to piss on your own arm/hand. pretty well hurt! nice rash on my arm now though. Its all good though

Time to hit the net up tonight and catch up with all the crew agencies and hassle them. Just read nics email. Buzzing, so stoked for her!! and think i might go have a beer to celebrate over here! haha.

Anyway, need to head to the super to get some stocks. enough for now, good to hear from everyone at home! hope things are all good!

update soon. Ciao
