Yours truly, excited and somwhat damp, arriving at Dassen Island

We gratefully accepted a lift to the lighthouse

On the air at last!

A view of the island from the lighthouse
We stayed in the house on the right

Our antennas - a 15m dipole running from left to right and a ZS6BKW inverted
V looping up from the foreground. At the top of the mast is a half-square for 2m

A penguin couple which was nesting a few metres from our front door

The Jetty - it looks like I'm trying to hitch a ride home!
