The following is an account of th Fir daily experiences.) By Sean Kelly Spe'ial to the Cape Gazette You've gotta 1 ,ve it when you're leaving town and it's snowing. u've gotta love it even more when your destinatio is Australia. My friend Clint Bunting called r Le about two and a half months ago and asked me if[ was interested in photographing his sprint relay lteam in Lorne, Australia, for the World Lifeguard I Championships (WLC). There was a lo ag pause and my reply was, "Is this a trick question.' I went on to say if I couldn't get the vacation tim off, I would quit my job and worry when I got back from Rehoboth gua00t',00ls take on Aust::alia "Down Under." Ironically, my two biggest photo shoots were from the Bunting gang from Delmarva. My first paid gig was with Dr. Lucy Bunting (one of the biggest because it was the first). She commissioned me to adorn her office in Georgetown with black and white images of local spots. You know her old office - the one with the giant wooden tooth in front. I tried in vain to get her to paint it white (it looked like a cav- ity), but she wanted to show off the natural grain and color of the wood, of course! And the second biggest. will be Australia, for obvious reasons, but I've always wanted to surf Bells Beach, and to see a platypus and a wombat in real life! Clint Bunting was joined by Dan Matta, AJ. Hemphill, Brandon Smith and Dave Dillehay for the trip to compete in the WLC. All of the lifeguards are from the Rehoboth Beach PatrQ1.
