    He lives on the River Murray and loves fishing, waterskiing and lawn bowls. Played lacrosse when he was young and caught a 2litre bottle size Yabbie several years ago!

    What a great birthday gift! He is going to feel very touched by this. I love your silhouettes and the way you did the water below the boat!
