Hooorray ...... My access sorted out (thank you Adam).

Well Steve, what can I say - it was great to meet you and Steph's and my pleasure to dive with you - a lot of extra fun, which we didn't expect - and that was just watching your excitement when you got a great shot !! And of course, even out of the water, enjoying some good chat at the end of a great days diving, relaxing 'up top' - doesn't get much better than that! I wont add any comments to your great trip report, or all of the other posts on Cocos, just to say a truly wondrous place, I feel privileged to have dove there. Dive safe my friend, happy to be your buddy anytime!
