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.

Hastings Caves

Imogen, Josh and I have a little list of things we would like to do in the next little while, and visiting Hastings Caves was on the list. I haven’t been there for many years (my last visit was at the end of 2005); and we invited my brother Colin along as well.

In the intervening time (or since my earlier childhood visits) some of the names of the formations appear to have changed and the one coloured light that used to be in the palace cavern (shown below) has been replaced by neutral lighting.

The formations are pretty spectacular, although Imogen’s recollection of our visit to Gunn’s Plains caves caused her to comment that limestone caves are all kind of alike (which is sort of true … but I still like them).

It was a warm enough day to have a swim in the thermal pool, which was quite refreshing and not too crowded.
