Week 25/2021: the wild places

Week 25/2021: Week of 21 June 2021 What did I want to do better this week? Shut down and go to bed earlier. Get more sleep. So, how did that go then? In my post about the book Spacemaker, I said that I’d decided to introduce a daily pause,...

12 of 12 June 2015

Friday 12 June started out cold at home, but warmed up very nicely during the day to about 13 degrees. Yesterday had been intense, and I was feeling all sorts of things all at once. I stayed up way too late last night and looked and felt like it...

Bruny Island – day 1 (part 2)

My criteria for a campsite are quite simple. I like my comforts. Specifically, I like to stay somewhere with an “amenities block”. I have done roughing it camping (aka Proper Camping) in the distant past, so to distinguish that from what we normally do, I shall refer to our...

P365 – Day 344 – lunar eclipse (10/12/2011)

After our visit to our friends’ place in the Huon, we made good on our plan to go tenting* in their back yard. It was a great idea, because it meant we didn’t have to rush home in time for dinner, so we could catch up properly, have a...

P365 – Day 135 i don’t want to go outside

Here are my photos for this week’s Sunday Selections over at Frogpondsrock. This afternoon at about half past three, Juniordwarf suddenly decided he wanted to go outside. We’d been inside all day, even though, as days nearing winter go, today wasn’t too bad. Still, I was quite cosy inside...

P365 – Day 80 supermoon

So, Saturday night was full moon, and it was the so-called supermoon. Apparently the full moon was the closest it has been to earth since 1993, so it was supposed to appear bigger than normal. Well, we had an overcast night didn’t we, so moon viewing was far from...

P365 – Day 38 spot the moon

I love watching the moon, and seeing it during its first few waxing days, when it’s just beginning to show as a thin sliver in the sky, always makes me happy. Yes, the moon really is in the picture . . . It’s a time to make a fresh...
