I gave the keynote at the end of the conference talking about the Oral History Project. We checked out of the hotel and went to Alison and Tony's. Alison cooked a big delicious dinner.
July 8. Tony, Don and I went to AUT where I gave a workshop on Alice programming. The person who was to have the accounts set up hadn't done it so we had a slow start. Two high school teachers--Gerard and Malcolm,from AUT Graham, Gordon, Tony, plus Don, and from Otago -- Dale, Lesley and Sam attended. We switched to looking at lots of languages in the afternoon. Then home for another Alison meal.
We had a lot of trouble getting out of the house. We tried to get a printer hooked up to print the geocache info, never did getr it on my machine. Then we went to the boat to pick up the geocache. I thought that meant walking on a dock and getting it but it meant getting through the yacht club gate for which Tony had the wrong code; getting the dinghy; getting into the dinghy which we nearly swamped (both Don and I had wet rears from the unbalanced load); rowing a long ways to the boat; me doing a very ungraceful entry.
Getting the dinghyWe had coffee and then took the ferry to Waiheke. It was a gorgeous day. Took the bus to Little Oneroa and walked along a track to find the geocache.
