Local pleasures

The trees outside our house are in bloom again, and the Rainbow Loris are out in force to enjoy the nectars. I enjoy their necks.

I went for a snorkel near dusk, which is mega creepy. I found a cuttlefish and followed it for 10 minutes or so. The surge was incredible - we both would fly a few meters and then pause, repeat.

We babysat for the first time today. It was fun, definitely a learning experience. The boy was 2 and the girl was 4 or 5. When mom left, he actually spent 10 minutes just crying and reaching under the door with his little arm for her. Pretty heart wrenching really. But then we mentioned the beach and he perked up and we had fun. We got to go up in a fire truck at the beach. Perfect...
