Long Weekend!

Hard to believe we're halfway through October (and Spring) already - not to mention this post is almost 2 weeks later than planned already. Holidays have come and gone for another two months (even if I had to work through them), and exams are looming in a few weeks time for all those around me and for the Year 12's (including my younger sister - good luck! =) ).

Anyway, the long weekend also brought the opening of the new sailing season too, for which I headed home again. Unfortunately I was struck down by Labyrinthitis for the second time in 3 years (however was lucky enough for it to not be as bad as last time) but ultimately it was mostly drifting due to a lack of wind. Luckily the final race on Sunday afternoon picked up so the weekend wasn't completely wasted by those who visited the region. No photos of that since I wasn't expecting the wind to pick up as much as it did.

The water-line is also still receding - these photos were taken on Saturday 11th. The usual view doesn't really show where it sits now that the logs are out of the water so here is a side view instead. For scale purposes, most people stand roughly two-thirds the way up the closest stump. Still deep enough for us to sail although there are some areas down to less than 1.5m.
