The photo-post (Oct 2012)

Turns out it's been a while since the last post (again). So I decided to have a little bit of fun - here's a snapshot of some of the random goings-on from the last few months.

There's actually less photos than I expected but the weeks seem to have flown past and I can't recall having nothing to do. The weather during July and August turned on the winter weather, with plenty of rain to go around (particularly halfway through a ride... end result: dirty bike). In July I clocked my longest ride to-date (151km) as preparation for the 4th Grand Slam ride in August. Although GS4 ended up being shorter (only 145km), it was ~12 degrees, westerly winds, and showers continually passing through the area. That said, I'm happy I finished a challenging ride, even if it wasn't too enjoyable during part of it.

Recently the weather has started to improve dramatically and it's been nice not having to rug up when heading outside (some days even pass 25C, so been great to get outside, eg day on the river, sailing opening regatta on the lake at home). Still some cool days thrown in so we're not quite into summer yet. And if you're curious of the significance to the 'garden' photo, that was my birthday present from my sister+parents :)
