The high seas, fast encroaching:
Here Come The Dragons.

Well, I survived the races today!  We were losers...4th place in the second to last consolation division to be exact!  But it was a good time, the weather was beautiful, the kids behaved and I'm not too sore.  I've posted more pictures at my other blog if you have a hankering to see more from the day.  Now it's late and I'm off to bed!

Perfect shot of Miss SD. :) I'll have to check out your photos on the other blog -

Re: my flowerpots photo. I just digitally altered the photo in PS, I believe it was the posterization effect. That effect works well on some photos.

If you finished, you're not losers!
Nice shot!

Love this shot and all the other ones you posted on your other blog. Even if you didn't win it looked like it was a great day.

Oz Girl - I love Photoshop, those flowerpots really "popped" with your adjustments.

Mari - There was some question of continuing to paddle about halfway through the race...but I pressed on!

Michelle - LOL...We knew we wouldn't place going in, there were some teams that REALLY were out for blood. It was a fun team building exercise for Dad's work.
