Wasn't last weekend lovely? just gorgeous, sunny, low humidity, a trifle hot, but as long as there was shade it okay.
Perfect weather for a regatta, in fact.
Saturday was the 14th Annual Houston Dragon Boat Festival.
I didn't get there at the beginning, but there were multiple heats, so I was still able to see a lot of action. It's exciting when those boats come barreling down the bayou, with drums beating.
And to while away time between heats, there are performances. I watched the Houston ShaoLin Kung Fu Academy do a series of exercises, and then the DJ played the theme to Love Boat, Sponge Squarepants and other traditional nautical ditties.

|I loved this team's slogan "Victory or Valhalla!"|
There was food, drink, a bouncy castle, information on dragon boat racing, a tourism booth for the Philippines, and a guy with the coolest kites ever.
How was your weekend?
