A Day At The Races

As She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed forgot to take the magic piccie box with us when we went to Aberporth to watch the longboat races on Sunday here is a link to tell you all about longboat racing in Wales http://watersportswales.co.uk/longboathistory.htm.
Almost every weekend during the summer a different village on the coast holds a race meeting. It was Aberporths turn this week. The weather was sunny but there was a cold wind which whipped up a respectable swell on the water. There were four races in all, the men went first. They had to race to Penbryn and back, a distance of 5 miles in all. The race was won by the New Quay boat with Aberporth coming in second. This was followed by the ladies who only had to go half the distance to Tresaith and back. New Quay won this race aswell, in fact they won all 4 races with Aberporth coming third. The novices and juniors went next over the same distance and the mixed crews ended the day doing the longer distance.
Tansy and Sooty came with us with Beryl and we had a great time playing at digging and chasing. Sooty likes stealing my toys and running off with them! 
While we were playing I made a new friend. His name is Ted, isn't he handsome? His Mum took this piccie and e-mailed it to us. We were waiting for She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed To throw a stone into the sea for us to chase.
She  Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyed managed to lose my string of sausages, how could she? I mean they were my were my FAVORITE toy for taking to the beach, they were PERFECT for burying and digging up and chasing into the water and now they're GONE! (never mind Finn, I'm sorry I lost them. but we'll try to get some more, O>K?)                                                                                            t
