Race day

It's that time of year again. Yesterday I pickup Sam, and we headed off to the city so she could run, run, run, and I could sit and wait.
I think this year was the coldest of all the years. I took the cardigan so I could work on it while I was waiting for her to cross the finish line
But I only got a few rows done - my hands got too cold too quick.

Instead, I chatted up the locals
 ... and these hoodlums...
... and the most beautiful Mama swan.
She was such a sweetie, she even showed me her babies.
Daddy swan was keeping watch from the water.
... and soon enough, I caught sight of Samantha on her way to the finish line.
Just a few minutes more and...
... it was all over...
Until next year of course!
