|Mordialloc pier - Father and Son walking in the afternoon sun and enjoying the views.|
|Later in the afternoon after a cool beer with a cloudless sky, the light planes flew overhead above our backyard. I said to Jack, "do you want to go and have a look at the airport".|
There's a museum at the airport - first time I'd been there. Jack and I wandered around for some time just taking in the sights of aeronautical history.
|TAA and Ansett were our two competing airlines - Don't know if I'd like to fly in those days but their safety record was excellent.|
My Dad is a bit of a cycling tragic and loves to watch bike racing so I took him to the Sunday racing and I foolishly decided to enter as well. He had a great day with many people saying hello. He's a bit of a legend.
I was pleased to ride in front of Jack although I did finish at the rear of the field (well I am 60!!!)
|Racing is on a one kilometre circuit and there are usually 250 starters over 5 levels of racing.|
|The big boys average 45 kph over the 1 hour of racing - last weekend Simon Gerrans, an Australian Euro pro joined in while in his off-season back in OZ.|
And that was my weekend with my Dad Jack - one to remember for both of us.
