Glorious day. The opening of the yacht club season. Even a breeze for the yachts to flutter their sails and bunting.
A bunch of chores needed sorting. Fair bit of blood involved!
An undignified sprawl. The result of tripping over my feet while out on my run. Fortunately, I was wearing gloves so my hands are ok. Elbows a tad messy.
