Early morning dog walks, local rugby cheering and half-birthday curries

Early morning dog walks are best undertaken in Summer, when the sun is up before 6am – unlike Winter, where it’s often still dark and foggy come 8am. Nevertheless early morning dog walk we did, this past weekend. In addition to other things, as you’ll see below…

Later that afternoon we ventured out for more food. Husband tried the burger-and-beer special at Beach Tavern, Woodbridge Island.

Little bit of rugby, lottle bit of cloud. Yes, that's now a word - lottle.

Even our shadows came along to watch the fun on the field.

Not something we do often, but fun to spend some time in the games arcade after breakfast. I liked the spider-tap dance game, Husband enjoyed riding a speedboat of sorts.

Victorious! If you look closely you can just about make out all the tiny blue Fizzers I opted for with our winning tokens.

My first time in the foyer of the Westin - the two-day conference I was attending was in the surprisingly large, surprisingly jam-packed (ham-packed? lol) 'B2' lower level.
