Congratulations to the New Divemasters!
Congratulations to the three new dive masters, Scott, Darren and Brian who completed their final dives of their divemaster course last weekend at Kiama.
First Hike from Heathcote to Waterfall
Did our first hike from Heathcote to Waterfall. We decided to do it in the opposite direction as what the hiking guide book suggested and ended up doing the wrong route. Still a good hike and it gives us another reason to go back and do another hiking trip there.

Should I be a PADI Rescue Diver

Running Apps in Airplane Mode
This morning, I decided to try doing a run with my iPhone in Airplane mode. I did this because I wanted to see how accurate the GPS positioning will be when in that mode and whether it is a viable sports tracking tool when you are overseas (with no global roaming). I used 4 running apps and compared how they fair when recording a run without cellular connectivity.
