Dragons Abreast Regatta 25/10/08

Last Saturday I joined my colleagues at school and competed in the Dragon Boat Regatta on Lake Burley Griffin.
It was organised by DragonsAbreast to raise money for breast cancer research and it was very successful.
It was such good fun. We didn't make the final but we were in two heats. I think it was a 200 metre race and we were pleased we made it in 1min 4 secs and 1min 6 secs ( better times than in our 3 training runs). I think 36 teams competed.
Lots of us want to do it again. We are told there's another regatta in Feb 2009. Janelle.

Floriade Visit : October 9, 2008

Mum and Dad and Deirdre visited Canberra on October 9 and 10, 2008. We went to Floriade on Friday October 9. It was a perfect day weather-wise and we all enjoyed the time. The flowers were better than we expected at this late stage of the festival.
Sylvia and Janelle accompanied them and Amy came to meet us briefly.
