Last week I had a couple of days of one on one lessons or textbook lessons at Nova. This means I usually have one student for a couple of lessons from the text books provided rather than our usual Australia lessons that students can do for 1 or 2 weeks. This time I had a bit of flexibility as she wanted several lessons and not just from the text book so we talked about newspaper articles, world events and The Great Barrier Reef as well.
On Thursday we had our longer day, starting at 10am and doing 5 lessons. As usual what we could see out the window was very interesting and always changing. It was also a great example of the weather for the end of the week.
|What is with the balloon I wonder.|
|Showers on the mountains but none in town.|
|Grey mountains merging into grey clouds|
|The blue sky, cloud war.|
|The first time I can recall being able to see a boat out of the water from work.|
|It must have been a good day to be on the water.|
|Heavy clouds raining on the mountains in in the south.|
|Another fire started.|
|I love watching cloud change the mood.|
The sunny weather is back but this occasional attempt to rain tells me the wet must be coming soon. Even the tropical north has dried out and it ready for a good wet. I think they are predicting 4 cyclones for this area and that one will hit land. Lets see how right they are. Also stinger season has started with already a few points to the jelly fish, they believe one was those dreadful irukandji, I feel sorry for that person. Crocodiles are also on the move and being spotted on the beaches and near beaches looking for a mate. Never dull in the north I believe. I think I might stay clear of the water for now, I'd prefer to stay clear of these locals although a pic of a croc in the wild would be pretty cool.
More mentions (some very brief) of stingers and crocs here and here and here and here and definitely a crocodile one here.
