Shopping and lunching with mum; Mish at studio most of the day; finished off with fish and chips on south coast watching planes come and go on a calm evening.
Cool, sunny autumn day.
Almost stepped on a monarch on Island Bay beach.
Our sole survivor is still in the chrysalis, 39 days now but he's green with gold dots so hopefully still alive in there. He's hanging from a swan plant inside, so we work around him and watch daily for a black chrysalis = butterfly about to emerge.
