Melbourne Cup Day

So it is the auspicious Melbourne Cup today. Thousands flock to race tracks in special frocks, crazy hats and smart suits to sip champagne and place a bet on a winning horse. Me, I am not much of a gambler. From a young age it was instilled in us that it was a pretty ordinary thing, gambling.

Instead we had good friends join us for breakfast and then we spent a few lovely hours at the beach in the sun. Quiet. Restful. No hooraaahh! But it feels as though the earth is warming up, the sun is shining more frequently, there are hints of Christmas everywhere and the end of the academic year is just a whisper away. So happy Melbourne Cup Day.
