A thing I forgot to mention before: I stopped off at Chester Forest Camp on my way to Pemberton -- it's a protest camp on a site where they're due to start logging in the New Year. It's an absolutely beautiful area, pristine forest (which, y'know, you can't get *back* once you've chopped it down), and the extent of the logging that's going on all around there is pretty shocking. I saw the banners up as I rode past them, hence stopping to say hello & talk about direct action & compost toilets :) Another piece about the support camp at Karridale.

Currently I am in Adelaide, staying with Pat (the sister of a friend of my Mum's), who is v nice. There is discussion of winery-visiting at the weekend... The two days on the train back from Perth were fine -- I had a double seat to myself, & had a nice chat with a lawyer from Sydney over dinner. Plus we were all serenaded in the dining-car last night by one of the other passengers who was a musician & had brought his guitar with him. Quite bluesy stuff, not at all bad. I am kind of fed up with sleeping on the floor, though, even if it *is* more comfortable than the seats.

Melbourne on Monday, then Tasmania at the end of next week! And it is getting alarmingly close to Xmas although I find this very hard to get to grips with as it is *sunny* out. Does. Not. Compute.

I liked this post.

I also like these instructions for self-watering plantpots, except that I don't want to buy a stack of plastic boxes in order to get more containers for the balcony. I do want to be a bit less erratic with the balcony-gardening this year, though.
