Wendy & Mike Allsop, 23 Jan 2010 19:45 GMT
So how is your team mate managing to attract the flying fish! I guess you should all learn to duck! It is snowing here in Edmonton, big fat flakes just slowly coming down. All the trees and bushes are covered in frost so everything looks picture perfect - except that it is icy and there are a lot of cars in the ditch!
I can't imagine how cool it would be to row along side the dolphins. As you can see I am reading the blog on your website as well!
Take care, Row hard!
Susan Kerr, 23 Jan 2010 19:07 GMT
Hey Linda, hurry back - we have a full team together now to attempt to break the relay team record on 19 July for Arch to Arc. Row hard - you can make that record so that would be 2 world records in 1 year - way to go!!! Lv M xx

Whats the swell like down with you Mike? Cobb got Port E point classic today. We both caught good Hunts yesterday, so all is good in Gower.
