|Rowing boats in Victoria Park|
pen and ink and coloured pencils in Moleskine Sketchbook
There were an awful lot of teenage boys and families keen to get on to the lake and demonstrate their rowing ability - although precious few demonstrated any ability at all! I think rather a lot people underestimated how much skill is needed to row a boat - and to row one fast!
The only one who seemed to be any good was a small girl who actually understood that the blade of the oar actually needs to be pulled through the water as opposed to dabbed in and out and splashed around! Various boats were going round and round in circles with varying degrees of shouts and screams from their occupants! The pedalos looked to be a much safer option!
I've never visited an Osteopath before but I have to say the problems in my neck and shoulder did feel very much better the next day. It's still not solved the horrendous pains and pins and needles in my arm - but they definitely seem to be linked to this area. I'm becoming quite an expert on the anatomy of the radial nerve and how it malfunctions!
