A big part of my December last year was spent sitting in a boat and performing surgery on fish; perhaps not the most normal lead up to Christmas but one that has become fairly regular of late.
I can’t say that I mind. Sitting on a boat in the beautiful Jervis Bay day after day certainly has it charms. Though to be sure, there are definitely days that don’t quite fit the idyllic pictures you are probably imagining – when a big storm rolls in with its attendant swell, wind and rain, combined with long, long days neck deep in bait, and volunteers battling seasickness.
