Title: Tree planting at 11:11:11 on 11/11/11

 
Each year the ARC arranges a tree planting to help restore the Gran Canaria forests, which were 99% destroyed by being harvested for ship repairs, back in the days when ships were made of wood and the trade winds were used for trade instead of recreation. 
 
People were concerned that not everyone would get a change to actually plant a tree, but there were 112 trees to plant between the 30 of us, so plenty of opportunity to dig holes.  Andrea and I managed 12 trees between us. 
 
At eleven seconds and eleven minutes past eleven we paused for a photo opportunity.  We worked most efficiently with me digging the holes and Andrea doing the tree planting and protective fencing.  However, Andrea was not going to miss the opportunity to be captured in a threatening pose holding a deadly weapon, so here she is posing by a hole that I dug.
 
Still no sign of the wind instruments.
