In between the ridiculous amounts of work I seem to have been doing in the new year, Gill and I have squeezed in a bivouac at Lost World crag on Mount Wellington, and a few days at Lake Pedder kayaking, boulder-hopping and swimming the river bed of the serpentine river from the dam down to the confluence with the Gordon, and lazing around (I tied Gill down).
A few photos to the right. Wildside mountain bike stage race this week – very underprepared, but my bike is all serviced up and schmick, so hopefully will survive. Then, Nick and Carol get here, I start my new job in Hyperbarics, and in Feb we nip off to the Southern Alps to climb Mount Aspiring. Tomatoes look great, lemon tree is not enjoying possum attention but is hanging in there, and we had our first roquette this week, with bok choi to come, and carrots on the long finger…Dad, your green fingers would be much appreciated! (But you would be so impressed by my tomatoes!)
