leecetheartist: (kayaking)

Update: In an exciting development, if all goes well in the land of technology, you should be able to track our progress as we forge onward to the finishline! Using some cool tech, we will be broadcasting our whereabouts during the race, up to an eye in the sky, which will keep the Spot Tracker Site informed as to where we are. So you can be at the race, virtually and track us. How exciting is that?!

So on the day, have a click here and see how we're going.

A huge thank you to all the people who have already donated. I am touched and pleased by your commitment, and very, very grateful. Thank you.

Here's my donation link again, for those that are interested

Friday evening we had pizza from Scarborough Pizza, and their new gourmet pizzas are very nice. We (Steveg, Rob and myself sorted out the rough edges of my Empire of the Petal Throne character and her faithful retainer and then had a very short game of The Last Panther where Steveg won the game on embarrassingly (to Rob and me) positive points.

On Saturday Ros, Rob and I drove down to Matilda Bay where we inflated Ros's new kayak and commenced paddling in a sort of watery convoy. Ros's Coleman kayak works really well, and she says she enjoyed it a great deal. All in all, we paddled about two kilometres (not at all bad going for a beginner)and the boat has exceeded expectations. Very pleasant, and no rain until we'd got back to the cars and could shelter with our thermos and snacks in the warm. It then considerately stopped raining when it was time to load the other kayaks onto the racks.

I then went and got my bike, which due to the metal beading in the old tyres going west has new ultra thin sports Continentals slicks on. A VERY big change from the ultra knobblies that I had. Lumo goes much, much faster now, just like the lightning he's named for!

We wandered off to Poss's and watched Dr Who, but couldn't wait until next week when this week's episode ended on a cliffhanger so we watched the next one. Heh heh heh.

Watched the Mystied Sword and the Dragon movie, which was pretty darn good, even if it was a Bert I Gordon. Then after eating far too many of Poss's mini choc muffins we departed, and as the tide was coming in, we went to do some fishing off Como Jetty.

Rob was apparently musing away when he noticed the west bank of the river kind of fade away after about his 10th cast. We hastily packed up, and were caught in the first watery breath of rain as it ran ahead of the main downpour. Crossing the traffic bridge over the freeway we got a bit soggier.

Came home, freeformed a bit, and then went to sleep.

It's rained a bit this morning, we're going to my Mum-in-law's birthday arvo tea today, and we've been vaguely domestic. Rob's about to head of In Search Of Gifts because we've been a bit busy to do it yet.

Hope everyone else is having a good day!
