TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS FOR 2012:- 24.5 kg/ 54 lbs

Thoughts for the day..........

We drew the curtains this morning  to a calm, fine and misty morning. But ... our neighbours collection of dinghies and canoes were scattered along 200m/yards of the beach. Some building materials were scattered over our lawn. Fortunately it was light stuff so no damage done by flying debris. John went out earlier in the day and picked up our outdoor furniture and putting it in a safer sheltered place.

The grey seas are rolling in right up to the bottom of our section at high tide. We are mean. We want to see a tide high enough with waves pushed in by the wind so that it attacks the false dune in front of the next door build. It's going to happen one day but this was not the day.

Reporting back............

It's lovely to have Jane home. We viewed her photos as a slide show on the TV. We enjoyed watching more of the Olympics. We admired the beauty of synchronised diving, held our breath as the gymnasts did flips on the bar, cheered New Zealand swimmers, and bounced up and down with joy when the Black Sticks, (Women's Hockey), beat the Aussies.

We watched Mark Todd with pride and pleasure as he and his beautiful horse went through the dressage. Mark Todd is now 56 years old and riding what had been his second string horse, Campino, which he has been training up for these Olympics. He has two Olympic Gold medals in three day eventing and many other awards and trophies. His first Olympics were in Los Angeles in 1984 where he won his first gold medal on Charisma.

I love this quote from one of his recent interviews.

“Luckily for me, riding is one of the few sports where age – and the experience that goes with it – is an advantage,” he says.  

Age is an advantage! Who Knew?
