Sports which I’d never tried before which are actually quite cool: Archery.

Sports which I’d never tried before which have left me wondering why on earth anyone would ever bother with that particular sport: Waterskiing.

I mean, really…

Not a big problem

There are many good things about where I am right now. Geographically, I mean. (Mentally, things aren’t too bad, but it’s still a bit busy up there.)

But I digress. Often. (That’s one of the symptoms.)

One thing that is a bit sketchy here is the internet. It’s not fast and it doesn’t always work. That might not seem like a big problem, and that’s because it’s not a big problem, but for me, internet access is important because I read the internet like other people read books around the pool.
(Obviously, also, there’s blogging to be done.)


And when I’m not around the pool, I’m on the beach (above) or snorkeling on the reef or getting better at archery (admittedly from a rather low starting point) or something else.

But it’s nice to have the internet to fall back on when you want to catch up or share photos with friends and family. When it’s not available, I have to occupy my hands with holding a beer.

Like I said, it’s not a big problem.

Memory Monday

Well, there’s Flashback Friday [is there? – Ed.] and Throwback Thursday, so why not Memory Monday?

Easy way to slip a quota photo in while I’m out hunting swimming with dolphins in the Indian Ocean. And since I’m writing this on Father’s Day (dolphins having comprehensively failed to invent wifi yet), here’s one of of my dad.

A belated Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.

As they always say…

No shrews is good news.

New room, fewer (i.e. none) shrews, better view.

Schlep to have to move, and we’re all a bit irritated right now, but we’ll be right back on the go by the time you read this.


Something resembling a lie in, Breakfast, Archery, Waterskiing, Boule, Lunch, Table Tennis, Tennis (well, that escalated quickly), Kayaking, Drinks at the bar, Football, Blogging. And it’s not even six o’clock yet .

Oh, and this conversation:

“Il ya un autre musaraigne dans notre salle”
[Résigné] “Oui, encore.”

We’re guessing at the Asian house shrew (Suncus murinus). Either way, it’s a flipping pain. 🙁
