Day at the Races

This was "our horse" on Saturday:

C's roommate is friends with the owner of Sudan, and since he couldn't make the race on Saturday, we were invited to go. This means that when it was time for Sudan's race, we got to go down and see Sudan before he ran, and stand in the owners' circle after he ran! It was a lot of fun, and at the end of the day, I was up $5, not bad for my first day at the track!

Here's Sudan before the race::

And here he is whomping the other horses::

We also had a great time camping in Mount Tamalpais State Park (across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Fran). This is the closest I've come to camping in a rain forest. In the morning, the fog rolled in, collecting on the trees, and dripping on our tent. From inside the tent, I was sure it was raining, but once you're out from under the trees, there's no rain!

Very cool! I tagged you for a meme (details on my blog) but maybe we can talk in person! There a couple knit nights coming up that I'll be going to Tuesday and Wednesday - you should check out the Bay Area Knitters group for knitting meetups, if you haven't already done so.
