Canberra has a public holiday for Melbourne Cup! It's apparently the last year it will be a public holiday in Canberra.
This morning at 6:10am, my lovely friend Leanne took me to the dragon boat paddling on the lake. What a lovely way to start the morning ( even though it was quite early!)
I suppose we will watch the Melbourne Cup this afternoon. I won't win. I know that because I haven't put money on any horse!
