I was getting tired of photographing the sea. One wave looks much like another. This brave little plant caught our eye.
The long and the short of it was we had had a brilliant day.
As had she.
Sunset on the Indian Ocean, 29/9/2010.

The most irritating film I have watched for a long time, if ever.
Galileo Galilei is reputed to have said,
"You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him discover it in himself."
Today he might have said,
"If it isn't in your gene bundle, you will never get it."
This film is proof positive. Perhaps evolution will eventually make all humans empathetic Spock's.

This video clip shows what a pod of orca's can do. My experience was no where near as dramatic as the these tourists, but I was left feeling much the same as them. In disbelief and despair. Still feel it now when I look at these pictures. I doubt I will take such affecting pictures ever again.

Kangaroos. Now how does this work? Hopping around in a forest? Would you let your kids loose in a forest on a pogo stick? Surely sprung legs are not at their best in a thicket of trees. We saw Kangs in almost every type of environment and most notably, dead on the road. One car passing every 5/10 mins and they still get hit. No other road kill seen, just Kangs. Very odd.
