I'm booked too. Sadly, Finn will either have to stay home or, if its overcast and cool, in the car.

Yes, I will be driving down.

A grand day was had at a very breezy Long Rock TMD. I'll post a selection of photos here tomorrow. In the mean time, all those I took can be viewed in my Photobucket at the following link. Rough and ready, no editing, some duplicates.
