The days are much shorter: I need electric light at night and in the morning now. It has continued to be stinking hot with frosts or almost frosts at night. The stars, when I do my tai chi on the deck in the morning, are stunning. The moon is growing.
I now have a great volunteer from New Zealand. Craig has done many things including corporate law: he is a journalist and one of his favourite subjects is interviewing crime writers. He has connected with most of the greats like Michael Connelly and PD James. As this is a genre I really enjoy, I find his stories fascinating.
A couple of days ago a friend came to visit. I stayed with Doreen in Greater Vancouver earlier this year when recovering from knee replacement surgery. Doreen has been to Nuk Tessli a couple of times and is a keen photographer and hiker. I took both her and Craig onto the duney north bluffs.
The endless hot weather has come with very little wind. We frequently found this track. No paw prints; too erratic for a snake; seemed to come from a hole in the sand. I have not found the track before: usually the wind destroys anything like that.
