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.

Scout leaders exploring their artistic sides

Today I found myself at Carnacoo, a campsite north of Launceston, for Scoutfest which is a leaders’ training/renewal/fun weekend. It was good to meet different Scout leaders from around the state, and exchange ideas. We divided ourselves up into patrols on the Saturday and selected our own goals for the day. Our group decided to head up to Narawntapu National Park, and do some creative artwork. My efforts in this regard seem to have become lost, but I did have some fun taking photos of things that appealed to me. Here are some of them.

We walked into the rocky coastline at the eastern end of Badger Beach.

There were lots of interesting textures in the rocks (we tried to sketch some of these, but we were instructed not to look at the paper as we did so … which turned out about as well as you’d expect!)

The light conditions were both tricky and interesting, with shadows, clouds, and sunlit water.

The photo below got the black and white treatment.

There was an interesting bit of driftwood (I tried sketching this too … but the photo is more interesting).

And on our way back to camp we stopped at the site of an early settlement, where I failed to take any photos of ruins or historical things, but there were some interesting wattle seed pods.
