The wild Wild West

During my working weekend as a powerboat instructor .I get to spots on the coast mostly roaring water bay depending on the weather this weekend we covered about 22 miles at sea and every now and then a photo just makes itself 
It's such a privilege to live in a place like this being able to explore and make new adventures every time we go out 

Towards the end of yesterday's trip we we got to a spot because the tide was out and a little landing beach was exposed and what we found wedged into a cave got us all a bit excited ,first of all we tought it might be a mine xxx yea the boom kind xxx but it turns out to be a metal bouy from "long go"
