This day started with me having the morning to myself, as my Mom was helping with the wasp wrangling. That is to say the tiny parasitic wasps my dad studies. This time of year the females have just come out of their pupa and immediately starts giving off pheromones. My Dad and his assistants have “lassoed” the females (yes it was a tiny rope) so they can’t fly farther than five feet. Then they monitor the males who come a courting.
When my Mom came back we went to a Nature Conservancy sight called Laverna which was the way to get to an amazing bit of rocky coastline called Brown’s Head. Unlike many of the other amazing bits of rocky coastline, here the granite strata had been pushed up in ways I had not scene before and was appropriately awed. Unfortunately my camera’s battery died before I could take even half of the shots I wanted. On the way back home we visited an old friend.
Later after supper we went to a lecture on Colonial economics and taverns. (getting sloshed on Rum despite all the blue laws was something the founding fathers did)
