Americas Cup 2022

with 2 comments

Watched a class of beginner boaties out in the bay today – I think it may have been the first session of the year. No sails for the brand new ones, sturdy plastic kayaks and paddles – and still they struggled with the rules both natural and man-made.

This little guy, who couldn’t have been more than 10 or 11 was clearly advanced and handled himself brilliantly for more than an hour – until it was time to go… Yeah – he’s dreaming of the Americas Cup 2022…

Nothing Special

with 6 comments

Of course just about everywhere has its special little places only the locals know about, not flash enough to lure the tourists or weekend getaways – which is exactly what makes these small treasures so very special.

This beach is a ten minute walk from my house, down a rather steep and winding path through the bush. Good swimming at high tide. No life guard. Folks launch their boats on the other side of the yacht club. Me – I like to take photos…

What’s your favourite nothing special place?
