Ducks, Gumboots and other oddities
A real good old winter blast came through this weekendafter dawdling our way through Autumn with nary
a real frontal system to be seen, and then bam
a good old slap in the face, here have some water winter hit
Saturday started off light at Chapman’s peak site,
but then built as the fog cleared and we had a great day of it,
with Noel, Christo, Andrew, Rob, Tim and myself having some great combat
flying some nice speed ships, and generally having a nice day out.
Sunday promised rain, and the sight of a duck walking past with gumboots on
was probably a sign, as the day stayed damp, the cloud base very low
and throughout the night the rain came down heavily.
Prediction are of more of the same for the week and the weekend
looking like a replay, so the gardens will get some water at least,
as we are at 35% of our May rainfall and desperately need more.
Attached are a few photies of things of general interest,
Tim Watkins Impala Wing getting a cover,
Pilot Figure painted by Christo, probably for the Spitfire,
My newly dressed Impala for Black Eagle PSS event, and yes,
this is a real colour scheme employed by the SAAF and
which we had a lot of fun maidening on Saturday,
thanks to Tim for the help with that,
and a view of the strange Saturday weather before it all cleaned up
and got lekker for the afternoon.

from Llundudno through to Chappies.
