Today is Ben's 37th birthday...he has just flown back to work this afternoon...
Here are some photos circa 1996 when he was pearl diving in Broome...He may be a few years older now but he is still just as handsome! and one of the boats he worked on...
He worked in pearling for 10 years for Paspaley Pearls as a deck hand, then diving and then skippering.
He has now been working in off shore oil for ten years as a Ship's Officer. He has had his Master One for a few years now which means he could drive any ship.
He had finished diving when we met in Broome in 2001 and so he has always worked away on ships...usually 5 weeks on and 5 weeks off.
We moved to Perth at the end of 2002 and married in 2003. And now we have two very gorgeous girls. We miss him very much when he is away.
Happy Birthday Ben...Lissy
