Hey Jon & Ali
Today the system never went offline and while I've not heard
anything from Justin, I am hopeful that the internet connectivity
issues have now been resolved. Right now quite a lot of
rain is falling, so in the back of my mind I'm hoping that
the sensor is More Waterproof Than Anyone Might Think Possible.
So far so good.
I have noticed that every time I go out on my bike I seem
to end up at a beach, even when that isn't my intended destination.
It's kind of the measure of being lost on an island I guess
- instead of ending up in the middle of nowhere, you reach
the edge, and have to turn around and go back. I never did
find that wildlife centre, or I would have had a photograph
of their famous red shining parrot for you.
All going well I'll be here another 5 days, before gently
packing up the apparatus and carrying it to NZ, where I
expect it will capture light in my front porch for a few
months. The light there is particularly good at this time
of year and of course Kyla and I live in tomorrow just like
the Tongan People.
All the best friends, it has been mighty fine. -E
