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.

12 of 12, August 2018

The second day of Scoutfest just happened to be the 12th, and so I had to take 12 photos.

I probably should warn you about the first one. I had a toothache … so I took a photo of the offending area, as you do. It’s the very back tooth. It was not a happy tooth. [Some weeks, and some expensive root canal work later, I no longer have a toothache.]

When I got up in the morning I spent a bit of time setting up a navigation challenge, which allowed me to explore the Carnacoo campsite a little more. This is the outdoor chapel.

There were some pretty colours brightening up the bush …

… and bursting forth around the buildings.

Breakfast was welcome, and then it was time for some formal sessions/discussions. The photos suggest that there weren’t a huge number of leaders in attendance — and there weren’t — but there was a good collection of people from around the state and it was nice to catch up with new and old acquaintances.

Later in the morning the groups got to try the navigation course I’d constructed … and it seemed to go well.

After lunch it was time to pack up, clean up and head off.

Odometer at the beginning of the drive home …

a photo on the way home …

and slightly blurry odometer when I arrived home (feeling a little blurry myself after the three-hour drive!).

[The “12 of 12” project involves taking 12 photos on the 12th of the month. This is the 108th edition since I started in 2009.]
