No need, there is a job you can apply for! That should keep you busy for a while :lol:

I love the bit at the end of the advert about the duration of the contract - two years "depending on shipping schedule". I notice that the governance of Tristan da Cunha is also linked to St. Helena - so maybe if TV applied, he could kill two birds with one stone - get close to the Antartica and visit St. Helena.


I agree those final photos of the lizards (or are they chameleons) are beautiful.

I am not sure what they are, I will see if I can find out when the chance arises. I will tell they frightened the life out of me as never spotted them camouflaged in the grass and when they suddenly made a dash my first thought was Alligator!!!!!!

Good point. Perhaps they should change their signs. :? You could also read it that the alligators are poisonous too. :lol: :lol:

Glad to hear you are back home again safe and sound. As I said before I have done this cruise on Eclipse and thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Loved the pictures.

I know what the lizards are called but can I remember!!!

I think you are absolutely right. I have just googled it to see. Not seen one so green before.

We saw lots when we were in Aruba and they were all different shades blending in with their surroundings. If you walk along the main street as far as the big Timeshare resort there are hundreds of them all around there.
