Rowing in the rain
After torrential rain overnight, Saturday was unrelentingly miserable, the rainfall ranging from a light mizzle to a steady downpour....which was such a shame, as it was the annual Dragonboat Festival at the Rowing Lake, and Alex was rowing for the Froglife team.
Despite the rain, there was a good turn out and we were there to cheer the him and the rest of the team on for all three races, although we did retreat home between the first and second, and then went to the pub between the second and third!
What they lacked in technique, they made up for with sheer, dogged determination (look at those expressions!) but didn't quite make it through to the semi-finals. Ah well...maybe next year!
