Cor blimey it is cold isn't it!

6 of us met at the gym and ran down to Wharf Road to meet Sallyann. We grabbed our pickers and meandered around Springfield Basin. It was surprisingly clean and tidy so we took the opportunity to reenact the image on one of the barges we saw. Absolutely bloody nailed it. We chatted about Valentine's Day plans and relived some trauma from Joe's past. So wrinkly...

As we trotted around it was getting colder and mistier so we wrapped up early and headed back. Sadly Joel took a tumble on the way but we are hoping he didn't perish on the way back home.

Laurie and I also got Popeye's on the way home after all the conversation about takeaways. Delicious.
