2011 summary

The year started with two beautiful weeks in New Zealand as Fawna recovered from her Antarctic experience.

On Australia Day we took a great trip up Indian Ocean Drive to the north of Perth
 Tim got up to quite a lot of painting in the summer and then had a rainy fieldtrip in June to the Youanmi area of WA's outback.

We then had a big trip in July-August which started in Edinburgh for the Antarctic Conference.

To complete our Scottish experience we had some solitude in the Outer Hebrides
 We then had a great family and friend catchup in Lancaster and London before heading across the pond...
