Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Friendly Beaches, two lakes and two skinks

The second full day of my getaway with the APs saw us exploring a dead-end road with no views in the morning (actually, that’s not strictly true: it went through some lovely bush with interesting rock outcrops … but I just neglected to take any photos). We then headed to Friendly Beaches, with its white sand and brilliant blue water. I had some fun taking photos here.

In the afternoon we explored Bicheno a little more, including capturing some shots of the Blowhole (nobody got wet in the taking of these photos).

The orange lichen and its granite substrate make for a very distinctive landscape, typical of this part of the East Coast of Tasmania. It is also evident at Wilsons Promontory in Victoria, since it is an extension of the same bit of granite.

On our final day we headed home via the Midlands, calling in at Lake Leake on the way, with its low water levels half-revealing old tree stumps.

There were some skinks (small lizards, about 15cm long) sunning themselves on some old tree roots.

We also stopped at Lake Dulverton, in Oatlands, where Dad and I found a geocache. Mum took this nice photo of us returning on the causeway that crosses the lake.
