Sutherland's been getting Huge amounts of rain over the past couple of months & it's occasionally led to some flooding. A spectacular waterfall appeared behind Valhalla (Vic & Annie's home) back in February.
That & subsequent deluges have led to the place being temporarily renamed Mudvalla. No sooner had the green stuff been cleaned out of the pool & put up in the trees, when the mud came rushing in...
Not enough to cramp the style of the natives though - boys will be boys!
We even got some archery lessons thrown in, thanks Keith!
Meanwhile, up at the hostel, Anthony took a break from writing software for automating his PCON software ATP. He set up his camera on a tripod to stake-out the home of a very cute little rodent & then with a long-distance remote trigger was able to nail these Fantastic shots of the little guy :)
Later, Darragh, Dave C, Denys & Amanda arrived from Cape Town with SALTICAM & dozens of other boxes, bits & pieces, including the Atmospheric Dispersion Compensator (ADC). Welcome back SCAM!
Everything was unloaded into the spectrometer room, ready to be unpacked & assembled tomorrow...
