Spring has sprung,
the grass is ris'
I wonder where the boidies is?

Well the boidies and blooms were out in full force this morning as we strolled through Melbourne's botanical gardens!

The first day of spring! Melbourne weather was 100% on cue. After a morning cycle along the coast, while having a coffee at one of the many coffee shops along the route, I was wondering how I would best make use of this perfect weather. I barely had time to have a shower and something to eat once I got home, when I got a call from a colleague that there was a Spring Day sailing race on at Brighton, and one of the yachts was short of crew. What an opportunity! It was a perfect day for a beginner like me, the winds were light, but sufficient to get me started on the drill. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and will certainly be doing more of this. I did not have my camera with, but managed to take this snap from my phone - after the event!
