Day 1129 - Yesterday's Races

Here are the photos from yesterday's Melbourne Cup Day race meet in Canberra.

Note, these were taken with my phone so not the best quality.

It was a lovely day spent in the lap of luxury in a climate controlled room overlooking the track and (more importantly) the fashions on the field.  If I could have put money on the fashions I would have picked the trifecta, but alas our betting was confined to horses where I came last in every race. A three course meal of seafood entree, veal mains and a selection of desserts certainly made up for the lack of financial success.   Oh and the bubbles weren't too bad either.  It was a great way to spend our meet-a-versary.

Let me take this opportunity to wish my Husband a very happy wedding anniversary today as we celebrate 14 years of being legally bound.

Oh, and we didn't win the lotto. Damn! Next time ...


  1. Those are some fabulous pictures and awesome fashion.

  2. You look gorgeous! I love the headpieces, but Im always to chicken to wear one! Mine was a demour black headband with flowers on it :)


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
