Now with the yard work done and a full tank of gas it was time to go exploring. I met an American woman (from couch surfing) in Nowra and we headed off to Jervis bay for a swim and a hike. On one of our stops we went to the ruins of a light house. It needed to be demolished since it was made of sandstone and the light reflecting off of it was blinding the sailors. It was also built in a place where it was useless and as the sign said "two wrongs don't make a light". The bay is beautiful and we had a lovely day. I was however greatful to get back to the relatively tame hills of the Southern Highlands after spending the day shifting between 2nd and 3rd.
The weather was much cooler by the bay and it has now cooled down here. Judging by the sauna, that I arrived home to today, it was a bit of a scorcher. The students have been less than productive by the end of the day in this heat. Now that it is over all I have to worry about is making sure that no more birds fly into my classroom. That was a new experience for me.
