How are your stress levels?

This photo of a mate, sits in my photo file and is from one of our annual “boy’s get-a-ways” to Weipa on the tip of Cape York. Some of us have been going there since 1988 and at present our current team have had 11 years in a row on the same houseboat. The trip has become less about the fishing and more about the food, the comradery and the de-stressing as every one of us are  operating our own businesses with all that modern life has to throw at us. I look at this photo often when the pressure is building and at present the clock is ticking, In 12 more days I am off the Weipa.

Update. Just back home after a week away..and yes, the stress levels are down but my liver is rejecting me!!
