Penny and I strolled down to the Yarra River at Warringal today, for her usual swim...
...a beautiful walk in the cool of a summer evening.
Then we headed back, towards the sports oval, and found a scene of exciting change. It's time for the footy season!
It was amusing to see the cricketers were sticking to their guns - or wickets - and continued to practise bowling and batting in the cricket nets, ignoring the hordes of footballers running around beside them.
Three cricketers - but dozens of footballers, from lots of different clubs. I think the footy is going to win the battle for space. Seeing the news cameras were there in force, I guess it was some special introduction to the start of the 2015 football season.
