sunday sunday

We went down to South Perth Yacht Club to watch the invitation races for the Moth Champs.  Here is Grant going out to the start - two invitation races - 55 yachts - and a 20th and a 13th - pretty good effort

 Heading off - these little dinghies go very fast - it was also very very hot and we couldn't see anything much and need to note a few identification points - so we truncated our visit and will check back tomorrow when hopefully it won't be quite as hot. The water was very tempting.

 Of course, sailing clubs are great places for rusty stuff and I couldn't resist a few photos

 this one looks like lichen

and these two just appealed. Maybe I might try some rubbings another day.

 Inspired to check out a little rubbing on Tissutex

plus a little stitching

in our garden.

And yes, Heather, I guess Ian might look a little like his great uncle Spencer - he does have his name tucked in there somewhere! As far as I can work out, he was a bit of a character.

Those rust photos are so inspiring. I wonder why we all love rust so much - it must be a nightmare for some!
