Lazy Sunday

... found out how close. The planes flew right over our camper, we couldn't have been much more than a few hundred yards from the runway.

Fortunately they were only prop planes and not jet planes, but they still let you know they are there as they flew over, sounding much like a World War II bomber. Otherwise the campsite is nice enough, tonnes of space, yet randomly two other campers park immediately adjacent to us, ignoring every other space ...

Mosquito Bay was the chosen lunch stop, Wasp Bay seemed more appropriate on the day, where our guide, Todd, laid on a feast of chicken wraps, salads and sauces, even freshly brewed coffee and carrot cake and at least the wasps seemed to "buzz" off ...

Juggling Apples

... there's nothing worse than biting in to a soft apple, but nobody's wants to break a tooth either! A machine called a penetrometer calculates the number of kilograms force needed to push a metal probe into the flesh of the apple- a high number indicates a firm apple. The apples are then cut in half and sprayed with iodine. Starch present in the apple will stain black, the other areas will not be stained as the starch ...
