Rowing redux

This has been the weekend of rowing.  After my foray into a boat last evening, this morning I took the little ones down to the lake to watch the local regatta.  We only stayed a couple of hours --- they have limited patience for these sorts of things --- but we enjoyed the time we spent there.
Later (after Skibo had managed to fall and skin his knee, leading to all sorts of fuss) we sat and watched the blues row: and to my great pleasure, the light blues took it this year:-)  The boat race has been a fixture on my calendar for close to forty years --- way before I went there --- and it was lovely to see Cambridge come back from behind, in a very good race.

Yours, remembering being a rower,
