Finally, the weather is behaving enough to let me post! Sorry for not replying sooner about dragon boating, but ren is right about it being a knackering sport! It is a lot of fun, too, and I'm hoping to keep it up. The boats are quite long, and just wide enough for two people to sit side by side, each paddling on one side only. The boat I was in the other day had twelve paddlers, but the one that went out ahead of us had eighteen! I'll try to get a photo of one of the other boats to post here. I'm only doing it for recreation, but some of the club have just returned from the World Championships in Malaysia, where they did very well indeed.
Ah, yes, a photo. This is the little windmill and garden just outside my mother's patio door, taken when I visited her a few days ago. I've shown the windmill before, but the garden has expanded since then.
