Cue music, Rod Stewart, "I am sailing, I am sailing"
Once upon a time when there was just Mr and Mrs M and no little M's. Mr and Mrs M liked to go to the lake and sail their little yacht.
Actually Mrs M. sort of liked it, but didn't like the nasty boom that always wanted to whack her on the side of the head when she wasn't expecting it. Anyway, then there was a very big drought and all the lakes dried up and Mr and Mrs M were too busy producing little M's to be out sailing.
That is until the "big wet" this year. See here.
Last weekend, we retrieved the little boat from the Yacht club and were amazed to find that it hadn't been eaten by white ants.
Here she is all spruced up with a fresh coat of varnish.
Now all the lakes around are full and all sorts of water sports are back on the agenda.
So this weekend we took our little Mirror yacht and our kayaks out to one of the lakes for a bit of water sport.
The yacht is called " the boat" the purple kayak is called "the purple bean" and the blue kayak is called "the kids kayak".
They all took turns sailing with Mr M.
Hello Euan if you are reading.
Thank you for introducing me to sailing at Metung, all those years ago!
Whilst all this was going on.
I wandered around with the camera.
I think we will be spending many happy hours out here on the lake.
