It’s race week in Melbourne!

We went to Derby Day on Saturday with Barry and Sarah for an afternoon of picnicking and champagne, and maybe a few wayward bets… (I won $20 on Wall Street!)

The thing about the races is that you are at the mercy of the weather gods.  They must have heard my prayers for a few days of sunshine before we head back in to winter, because we ended up with an absolutely splendid day:  sunny, warm, light breeze.  It was Melbourne weather at its best, so we just sat back and soaked it in.  (‘Course all these pictures look overcast but it was sunny, I swear!  I’ve got the sunburn to prove it!!)

(the whites in white (and black…))

(What do yout think:  is this (A) a campaign ad for Heineken, (B) a print spread profile of a politician looking pensive or (C) a really tall Irishman??)
