Time flies, cricket, tennis, cycling, F1

I am amazed how quickly time passes. It does not seem long since I arrived in Melbourne last November but already tournaments and races have come and gone.
There were six WBBL matches at the nearby Junction Oval
 Team huddle before the match
 Getting that extra purchase
 Fountain in the park
 Rowing on the Yarra. I am looking forward to Henley Regatta on the 20th
 Purple trains
WBBL semifinals
 Football stadium
 Tennis venue
 WBBL and BBL finals at the G
 Nice day for cricket
 Crowd builds up for men's match
 Sydney Thunder won both WBBL and BBL final
 Mascots racing
 Flypast on Australia Day
 You could visit Government House
 Vintage cars on display in Kings Domain
 A week earlier this F1 structure was a green field
 We do get a rainy morning on occasions
 Aus v India T20 at the G
 Boundary ball coming
 Another four
 Cheatle has her own style
 Ferling does not jump so much now
 India won the match and the series
 I went on a guided tour
 Our guide shows us Hosiers Lane
 Can you see the man's face in this building ?
 Standing in a fountain for a selfie. I would not do that.
 Fed Square buildings
 Phil Liggett introduces the SKY team at #SunTour 16
 'Froomey' (he won the tour)
 Individual time trial on South Bank

 Albert Park
 Lewis will probably ignore this 40 kph sign in 6 weeks time
 I hope the swans know about the Grand Prix
 Wedding in the Botanical Gardens
 A local T20 at Toorak Park
 Plenty Valley batting, Prahran CC fielding
 Good catch
 Run out
 despite the dive
 Sunny Sunday afternoon at Toorak Park
I noticed that the skills of some of the 1st grade players was a notch down from the WBBL and International players. This was mainly in the fielding. Prahran CC won this low scoring match.

There is plenty coming up including the Melbourne Grand Prix at Albert Park.
I will be there.
