du rôti (demain)

Priory Farm mountain boarding

A few weeks ago (when it was still summery) we went to the Priory Farm, had a walk around and watched some heats of a national extreme board competition.

The sport of mountain boarding is described as a cross between skate boarding and snowboarding.  It is certainly not as fast as snowboarding, and a mountain board does not have the same manoeuvrability as a snowboard.  All in all, not quite the same appeal.

I have taken these pictures off a video I took, at one of the main jumps, but not on the main competition slope.

Tomorrow we are going to see Bea Arthur at The Savoy Theatre.  We three meanies went to see it in Cape Town in August at The Theatre on the Bay.  I’m looking forward to see if there are differences between the shows and with the CD, which bluemeanie (who else?) has.  One of the most interesting reviews of the show that I saw was at the blog Zbornak.  See here and here.  The last one has some pictures taken through the window of her dressing room, and some links to two good Bea blog posts.

This is what happened next
