Well it’s a lazy Sunday at home.
Overnight rain has put paid to any gardening today, which judging by the stiffness in my shoulder and back muscles after yesterdays exertions is probably not a bad thing.
The sun has broken through although we are experiencing 20 to 30 knot winds from the South West. This means our weather blows in from the Antarctic and there is even a forecast of snow down to the 900 metre level in highland areas and also the possibility of snow on Mt Wellington in Hobart. Tasmania in summer, got to love it.
Today is Devonport Regatta day and the Mersey River is a hive of activity with Rowing, speedboats, wood chopping events and heaps of other onshore action.
If you listen carefully you may be able to hear the speedboats on the river.
Tasmania is also home to World Champion axeman David Foster . Wood chopping has a long history in Tasmania and has produced numerous champions of international standing. David has a high media profile and has been one of the driving forces behind the Axemen’s Hall of Fame 10 minutes from Devonport and his own wood chopping centre Foster at Lucas .
We’ve already been for a walk this morning and will probably go for a second one if the wind doesn’t get any stronger.
So rest and relaxation, watching the Premier League football. My side picked up a point overnight so all is not lost.
Bye for now.
