The Bali Bombing Memorial, Coogee

This sculpture is the memorial erected on Dolphin Point, Coogee, Sydney, to those who lost their lives in the Bali nightclub bombing of 2002. 88 of the 202 dead were Australian, 20 of them lived in Coogee and neighbouring suburbs, and six of those were members of the Coogee Dolphins, the local rugby league club.

Ile de Ré Reflections: These tiny snails had congregated on all the carpark posts.

Fungi Foray: The Association de Botanique et de Mycologie de Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine will be holding a fungi foray in the Forest of Chinon on Sunday 13 October. Meet at 2.30 pm in the Saint-Benoit-la-Foret church carpark. The mushrooms gathered will be identified by experts at the end of the outing. The emphasis is on learning to identify all types of fungi, but there is nothing to stop you gathering edible species for eating at home later.

Car News: We replaced the back tyres on the Scenic yesterday, following a rather exciting episode which resulted in me ending up backwards and in the middle of the roundabout in front of IKEA in Tours some days ago.

  1. "Car News"...
    I've heard of taking the car out for a spin...
    but that sounds "ridikulus"!

    I took a load of photos of some very small, highly ribbed shelled snails doing the same thing up one tree in the car park at l'Intermarché at Wyzeurs Circlip a few weeks back...
    so, do snails have slow conferences?

    Nice memorial to what must have been a group of friends.
    Well designed...

  2. Glad to hear the 'exciting' episode had a nice tame ending and you're ok.

    I like the memorial: interesting interlocking but simple design.
