it was a long weekend here; Labour Day holiday yesterday. We used the opportunity of a three day weekend with good weather to take our boat out for a spin.
In the afternoon when the sun came out we all slathered it on but I am told i was already red by then. Oh well, it was only mild and most of the redness has already gone today. I must just remember not to scratch my arms if they get itchy though - owwwww!.
In the afternoon we got the "donut" out and the kids and my brother in law had a go on that.
This was last year; you can see the boat ramp behind my son;
Nature amazes me; it is awesome that this can turn around so dramatically in twelve months.
The other thing I managed to do this weekend was some knitting. I found this pattern here and decided for no real reason to have a go at it. it is almost done now, I need to get some cable needles to finish it off as i can't keep decreasing in the round with the circular needle.
Oh well, what's done is done. I will finish this beanie and then possibly have another go at one. It is a great pattern; very easy and very effective.
