Easy run today down to Pine Is, a few laps around the top car park, then back to the beach for 25 minutes in the river. Bit of a surprise was the amount of water still flowing down stream. There must have been plenty up in the mountains, the water level was higher than normal.
The water temperature has dropped a few degrees, it is noticeably cooler, so a bigger benefit. Very nice just standing and splashing about.
On the radio this morning, the first song I heard played was by Dire Straits, Romeo & Juliet, one of my favourites. Apparently the song never charted in Australia on it's release, don't understand why, it's very good.
Last song I heard tonight was also by Mark Knopfler, this time the instrumental, Going Home.
Should you attend my funeral one day, you will hear this played again, it's on the wish list.
But you probably won't be there, I will out live you all, that's the plan as I have to beat my Auntie's age of 92 years on her departure. Good luck !!
