August 1st- August 12th
Hi Everyone, This is just a quick one to fill you in on the past couple weeks.
The day of the cup finally arrived and it was a great day- lots of sunshine and a great atmosphere and even though they ran out of drinking water, there was enough champagne and beer to keep us cool. We didn't pick the winner of the cup but we did manage to choose the second and third horse over the line and we won enough during the day between us to keep us going back to the bookie.
Enjoy the photos and don't forget to check out the photo gallery on the right for more!

Last weekend was much more low key. We spent it at Douglas Hot Springs which is south west of Adelaide River. It is a stunningly beautiful part of the world and how great it is being able to loll about in the water and not have to look for crocs at the same time! Some areas really were too hot to stand in and others quite cool. The trick was to find a spot where the temperature was just right and then sit back and let the water (and fish) swirl past. Beats me how the fish didn't get poached on the way through but I guess they knew how to keep to the cooler channels.

This week we said goodbye to Charlie. He was put down on Thursday suffering badly from cancer in his liver. We miss him!
