Enjoyed our cruise to Balls Pyramid with Jack. He was friendly and informative on the 22 kilometre trip out to the rock and on the return trip along the open side of the island.

We did the Mt Gower trek with Jack. The trek was tougher than expected, but Jack got the whole group to the top. As a naturist Jack spent time talking about flora and fauna, and he is also a well known photographer. Awesome day.
