Oh, I do love the internet! I was looking up the meaning of a work on Wikipedia, and ended up finding lists, lists and even more lists of fascinating words... eponyms, retronyms, backronyms...

Earth Hour 2011 happens today. I saw this sticker behind a signboard in Milnerton this afternoon. I have no idea why it's there or who Conduit Productions are but I can't argue with the sentiment. Hope the earth doesn't implode in 2011 either.

Mostly my garden isn't doing too well at the moment, but this little corner seems to be thriving. White abelia, purple tulbaghia and yellow and orange bulbinella in flower.

As soon as I put it down yesterday Thomas made himself at home on my backpack. He was probably liking the fact that it was all grubby and stinky, but I like to think it it was because he was happy to have me home ;-)

Day Four of the Whale Trail. Today the weather was perfect and everyone was having great fun on the hike. I really enjoyed walking along the beach, swimming in the sea and exploring the rock pools.

Today, Day Three of the Whale Trail, was a trudge along the rocky coastline. The scenery was spectacular, which kept me going even though the body was tired. Such a beautiful part of the world.

After a long day's walking on Day Two of the Whale Trail we were very happy to reach Noetsie camp on the coast. In the evening we sat around the fire in the boma, watching the waves. Here the guys turn to check out a baboon watching us from the top of the cliff.

Michele and I took a slow drive to De Hoop Nature Reserve today, on our way to the start of the Whale Trail. The last part of the journey was along quiet country roads through typical Overberg farmland. Aaaah, wide open space.

Yesterday I heard a snippet on the radio saying that there are a lot of ants out and about in Cape Town at the moment, and their furious activity is a sign that we are in for a very wet winter. At the time I thought that's odd, I haven't seen any sign of ants for months. However when I arrived home this evening my patio was overrun. A column of ants were moving stuff (food? eggs?) from my neighbour, across my garden, out the gate and along the side of the building. So many ants, so very busy!
