Disappearing Coastline

Wish I'd had a drone for this. Someone buy me a drone, or be prepared to pretend you bought me a drone.


I haven't skated in maybe 15 years, and even then I could barely stand up on a skateboard. I got the idea in my head recently that I wanted to learn to do it. No tricks or anything; just to ride a skateboard. Tabitha also seems pretty interested in learning so if I can stand up on one then it might encourage her to stick it out a bit.

Charlie from work was kind enough to lend me this awesome pizza skateboard which has pizza trucks and pizza wheels and is basically me in skateboard form. I had a lot of fun riding this morning, and didn't hurt myself. Got pretty comfortable carving and kicking turns and riding over this sweet marijuana leaf at our local skatepark.

My new ride length record

I don't usually do super long rides because they take too long and if I've got that much time to cycle I'd rather be hanging with Tabitha whilst she's still interested in spending time with me!

That being said, Sven came to visit and we planned to do some longer rides. This one was actually pretty nice - it was so flat and fast, it meant that the distance was more psychological than physical (though my back and feet did start to hurt around kilometre 80)

When we arrived, I wanted to take a victory photo on this pier, but someone came and started fishing so I took a photo of him, too.

Like consistent white balance? Keep walkin'

These things are always so satisfying to build.

First school uniform

Tabitha likes one of her new school uniforms. This weekend, parenting-wise, has been hard work. I'd be looking forward to going back to work if that was being enjoyable at the moment.
