Saturday 14th May – Acro Yoga at Davies Park Markets

Take Action for Affordable Housing and Sustainable Development

I got up horribly early and dropped Bronwen off at Pro Ride Honda to do her motorbike training. I then drove into West End and went to Jo’s “Take Action for Affordable Housing and Sustainable Development” rally. The developers of the Absoe site which the rally was targeting had shut down works for the day so the rally had become more symbolic than meaningful, but they marched from a nearby park down to the building site nonetheless.

Acro Yoga at Davies Park Markets

After Bronwen had finished her motorbike training I drove and got her and we drove back in to West End and went to acro yoga at the Davies Park markets. Unfortunately we had to leave to get to Sizzler before four shortly after Dom arrived and started doing some cool three-person-high things.

Sizzler

I ate far too much at Sizzler, and then spent the rest of the afternoon at home recovering.

Sunday 15th May – New Farm Slacklining & Acro

New Farm Slacklining & Acro

I again drove Bronwen to her motorbike training. Then, after she’d finished, we drove into New Farm Park—where there was, despite the name, absolutely no parking. I made the mistake of driving into the one-way loop around the park, where we got stuck for half an hour. We eventually found parking up a side street, and I rushed to buy chips. The chips were delicious.

I spent the afternoon taking photos of people not dying despite their best efforts, and Bronwen bounced on a string and stood on people.
