My present to you. (pro rata; ad hoc; inter alia on iBooks, assembled with iAuthor) . Give it to all the peoples!
Contemplating the Seated Power Pose, I suddenly wondered about endemic African ducks. And old Irish sayings: ‘there is no fireplace like your own fireplace’. If you’re lucky enough to have a hearth and home.
I feel guilty about neglecting my Duolingo too.
Beware the Geeldikkop! Tribulus terrestris can provide you with many a flat tire. I cannot blame my current frustrations on the humble duwweltjie, alas. They were rife in the veld between my childhood home and school, and caused many a bicycle puncture or smarting foot. Baie-sukkel, yes.

A short walk today – 5.24km. We were lucky to see an endangered Blue Mountains water skink! And some beautiful scenery.
You can read more about Charles Darwin’s Walk at Simply Australia.
And a wonderful walk it was! (First the train, then the ferry.) On to the walk; admire the little stainless steel sculptures that line the Shelly Beach. I did not see the artist’s name, but after googling a bit, I think they were done by Tim Johnman. I liked them all, especially the leafy sea dragons and the gloomy octopuses.
Rounded off with a scrumptious lunch.
According to my trusty Health App we only walked 7.99 km; 12,179 steps, and climbed but 15 floors, and all without the 20kg backpack ! Nevertheless, we feel that we deserve our Just Another Sauv (from NZ!). And after that, maybe a wee bit of Sweet William Tastes-Like-Chocolate…
