boats in the Round The Island Race pass. Just as we parked up Leopard and Concise 10 came into view, and it was the perfect start to the day. Leopard went on to take line honours, and Concise was the overall winner.
The sun was shining and we had a really top morning on the beach. It's when all the 'regular' boats start coming through that you get the real beauty of this race, it's an incredible spectacle.
Later had a nice bike ride with Popsie and Greg in the forest which was also great fun. Rounded off with a lovely dinner cooked by Lewis!
Have to do it all over again tommorow with a 7.30 start as we are sailing, or at least the boys are racing all day and I am ground crew.

One of the highlights of my day was finding the house where William Thompson lived in Weymouth - he was a naturalist and the first photographer to make photographic images of underwater life. The sea beds around Weymouth are well known for aquatic life, and to think he was achieving this over 150 years ago is amazing... very interesting article here

I salvaged this one as it captures something of the chemistry that exists between Mip and Greg. Whilst he loves being a "big boy", increasing so these days, he just loves regressing to small child land with Miranda, and she knows how to press all the right buttons.

Today we enter the summer season, and it's precipitating profusely, the gate is banging in the wind even though it's bolted shut.
Lewis has his GCSE English tomorrow, so let's hope he gets asked some questions to write about sailing or summer breaks on the beach!
