As mentioned in the last week, I have seen my first Motocross race, been for a bike ride out to the ‘Lady Liz’ (one of many, many ships wrecked or written off here, but this one happens to be iron and forms a great feature in the harbour), taken another walk across to Cape Pembroke (disturbing a seal in the long grass) and seen a Sea King land on the school field to drop off a casualty (evidently a fairly regular occurrence, as it happened again the next day and the kids didn’t even stop playing football at the other end).
The lesson from all of this? Always, always take a camera with you when going out and about in the Falklands – this place never fails to surprise. Fortunately, I did have it over some of the weekend:
Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog – it means you get email updates and means I know people are actually vaguely interested (I enjoy blogging, but it is a very one-way form of communication).
Hopefully in the next few days, I’ll be picking up a 4×4 so expect the adventures to increase in their scope and regularity. Next week, I’m hoping to take a trip to Kidney Island by boat to see something pretty special as well as, of course, the Governor’s reception! No, I won’t be asking for a Governor selfie.
