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.

Altona night caching run

You may recall that my silly To Do List had, as a low priority (but still very important) item, “reward self with a caching run”. Since I had completed all of the items on the silly list I contacted my friend May about heading out in the evening (I’m not sure how her To Do List was doing, but she was more than willing to come!).

We headed down to Altona, hoping to find some near-the-sea respite from what had been a hot day, although it remained quite warm through the evening. We managed to find four of the five caches we looked for, but were also treated to a great sunset and a full moon rising over the city. I hadn’t appreciated some of the history of the area — they used to manufacture explosives down there and one of the caches highlighted the remains of the old tramway that was used to transport the gelignite out onto nearby ships — and the local council has done some nice work developing walking and cycling trails among the wetlands.

Anyway, it was nice to get out and find some caches after a fortnight of busy-ness and lethargy. We had a fun evening, and finished up with hot chocolates at a rather late hour in Williamstown.

The sunset photo on the left includes a sculpture called Time Beacon, which is at the top of the 100 Steps to Federation walk.
