Here is a photo from Breaker Bay of me and my friends jumping off our 'bomb boat' with the Pencarrow lighthouse in the background.

Due to a lack of good jumping spots on the south coast of Wellington, we needed to fashion something ourselves. Our boat consists of two ladders firmly secured using ropes.

This experiment attracted a lot of attention from our neighbors and people passing by. A crowd gathered, cheering and applauding when jumps were made. It was great entertainment for a Sunday afternoon!

This is what summer is all about.
