Yesterday was the first day back to school after a two week school holiday break. Our 2 grandkids school had what we used to call a Pupil Free Day so we had some babysitting duties. We took them to the Aquarium of WA by the ocean at Hillarys Boat Harbour. AQWA - The Aquarium of Western Australia

Touching the starfish.

My grandson managed to break his wrist falling off a Flying Fox in the first few days of his holidays. It was not a serious break being a 'buckle fracture'.

It's never a dull moment in Conakry.... Was sitting in a room waiting for something to be processed.. then everyone was told to get up and head outside immediately. Lots of confusion and a bit disconcerting to see lots of guns as I exited... But then people were cheering as the convoy exited. Seems the new president (post coup) was here! Phew!

My current office.

My office today was chasing Miss H around as she learned to be a volunteer eco-ranger.

This onerous task included snorkeling the wrecks at Tangalooma, plus feeding kookaburras and dolphins.

Tough gig, but at least one parent was required to attend.;)

And it was a lousy day.

The view at one of my offices today somewhere in NW Tasmania.I was excited by this.

This could well be one of Tassies critically endangered terrestial orchids - Caladenia Tonelli.Distinguished from the commoner caladenias by having larger flowers,usually multiple but also a much larger stalk -25-35cm.This one measured 28cm.
What is of interest is that this one is at least 30KM from where it is said to be limited to.Emailing the pic to one of the local orchid bloggers.

Especially annoying having those pesky bugs around too 😉

Coming to the end of a month long work trip, haven't had a day off since I got here. Got stuck in the office till 4am this morning as I lost track of time working last night and curfew had kicked in already. Oops!

Enjoying an afternoon off at my local relaxation office in Conakry before braving RAM again tomorrow. Will the bag make it this time given its only a 1.25 hour connection? 🤔
