At Torquay for NAACE 2008

Brenda and Martin and I arrived at Torquay around 15:00 this afternoon.  We started in Saint Ives, with a couple of morning walks in the sun — evidently a rare occurrence right now.  The color of the water seemed to change every time I looked at it.  Then we took a train from Saint Ives to St. Erth, then another on to Newton Abbot, and a cab on down to Torquay.  Brenda and I took a long walk looking for food, and finally settled on a couple of pasties, as all of the interesting restaurants were closed until 18:00.  We’re both full now, so there won’t be out again today.  We found a Burger King, and brought back a burger and fries for Martin.

The NAACE conference begins tomorrow afternoon, and I am certainly looking forward to it.  As I have mentioned many times before, conversations about education and education innovation seem to happen in a language that is different from ours.  There is a different sense of confidence and I am looking forward to doing a lot of listening during the next couple of days.

I will talk some more about what I hope to contribute tomorrow or the next day.  Until then, I’m switching off and heading back up to the room for the rest of the evening.  Click here for the first load of pictures uploaded to Flickr.
