Juvenile seal in Kalkbaai harbour. He was just spinning slowly round and round, holding his flippers and tail out of the water. Sort of sunbathing in the water :-)

No, that's not a dog. That is a seal begging for scraps from a fishmonger at Kalkbaai harbour. It's difficult to see in the picture but he is ENORMOUS. I don't think he had any joy. When we walked past later the woman was gone and the seal watching mournfully as a seagull finished up the scraps. :-)

Just started reading Zen Cho's "Sorcerer to the Crown" +Diana Dirck​ and +Brooke Johnson​ I think you might enjoy! It has a really charming Diana Wynne Jones like whimsy to it. Only downside is the price of the Kindle version. I'm listening to it on Audible so it just cost me my monthly credit 
Sorcerer to the Crown (Sorcerer Royal trilogy Book 1) - Kindle edition by Zen Cho. Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Sorcerer to the Crown (Sorcerer Royal trilogy Book 1).

The visual inspiration for my current work in progress. It's set up the coast from Cape Town in Woodbridge island, but a very different version of that place, after the sea levels rise.

An amazing article on gender identity and civil discourse, and the importance of still being able to listen to people with whom you disagree. 
Alice Dreger, the historian of science, sex researcher, activist, and author of a much-discussed book of last year, has recently called attention to the loss of ambivalence as an acceptable attitud…

Maison Budgerigar got an extension today. I bought a new cage, took out the sides, and joined the two cages together to form an extra long flight cage. Zumbador and Elmore spend most of their days out of the cage, but sometimes that's not possible and now at least they can stretch their wings a bit.

Zumbador, true to his dim but adventurous little self, was the first to explore the new space. Now the more cautious Elmore has settled in as well and they both seem contented. Lots of commentary from both, of course.

Another picture from our silvermine walk yesterday. It was several hours. I think Pippin overdid it a bit. He was all stiff and sore last night but he still insisted that I take him out for his evening "social" walk at the dog park, where he encountered a tiny and very fierce little bit of canine fluff. He knows by now that the littlest dogs are the most dangerous so he treated her with respect! :)
