Pirate R & R

This week at Macquarie Island: 2 September 2011

Last weekend the Macquarie Island Pest Eradication Team (MIPEP) returned to station for some well earned R & R (and to have their first shower in 24 days). The team at station was ready to welcome them, with Danny having delicious meals planned and Wayne having the spa up and heated. On Saturday night a BBQ was held in the store, with pirates being the theme – as you can see there are quite a crew of piratical expeditioners on the island. Pirate badminton was followed by watching the footy game between Australia and New Zealand – the New Zealanders were a little quiet by the end!
