First day of holiday

Had a good day yesterday with arriving a couple of hours late after delays with the plane. Good flight and lots of sleep so I was pleased. Today we were up early and Ewan and I went down to have breakfast with mum and dad at the hotel.
Off at midday for a shopping trip for Alex in his new apartment at university. He will be all sorted with some stuff for his room. After a quick side trip to Joann's for mum and I, MJ drove us down to the waterfront to go to the America's Cup park and watch the second race. In fortunately damage to both boats and an increase in wind speed meant that racing has been postponed for today, but still saw the boats go past on their way back to dock area. Had nice lunch and time for drinking while enjoying the ambience.
Tonight we dined out at a nice local restaurant which was a good meal and evening. When we got home Erin and I got into Alex's mardi gras beads which was quite fun. They were really heavy and he collected them over a number of days. MJ took this photo.
