I spent nearly three months on Quirimba Island in the summer of 1996. As part of a volunteer team we spent our days researching the surrounding reefs of the archipelago and joining the fishing fleet to 'count' catches. Quite simply the most memorable summer of my life. A beautiful place and amazing people.
