Half day of work, half day of play

I think I would be okay working half-days. I got up and washed and hung a load of laundry before I left for campus. I spent some time with Allan Ellis who is currently Director of Research and Research Training for the School of Commerce and Management. He teaches and supervises post graduate students in the field of learning, training, technology implementation and change management. We geeked out a bit, first about my hack-in-tosh then about Moodle and Second Life.

I left his office and headed to the Teaching & Learning Centre to meet with a few of their staff.
Kelvin & Steve came to collect me for lunch. We met up with Deb at the Left Bank Café; we tried the sweet potato chips, complete with chili salsa and sour cream to dip and I had veal on sourdough. We walked through the adjoining gallery before heading home.

We changed into running clothes and headed to Ballina for the afternoon. We walked along the river all the way out to the ocean. Kelvin got some running in and then walked part of the way with us to dry off a little. A quick stop at Shelley Beach let us put our feet in the water though Kelvin stood up on the beach and watched us; maybe if we go to Byron Bay before we leave he will have his Crocs on and join me in the water.

After quick showers and gathering Steve, we went back to Ballina for dinner at la Cucina di Vino. Kelvin and I both had the chicken with mushroom risotto after sharing a pizza and some calamari. Kelvin and Deb also polished off two bottles of wine; they both slept well last night.
