New Pool — March 10, 2016

New Pool

Last week a new 10-lane 50m Olympic sized pool opened in the neighbourhood. It’s a huge facility and a 10 minute drive from us.

I’m impressed that the city would build a fully Olympic sized pool, it’s so big they can divide it into three standard pool size sections for different uses.

Torrey Pines — March 2, 2016

Torrey Pines

While I was in San Diego last week I had the chance to share a round at Torrey Pines South with a few of my fellow Automatticians. It’s an incredible setting, right on the cliffs facing out towards the pacific.

We managed to get a later twilight tee-time, which means we were there to play and watch a beautiful sunset. The course was very tough, thick ball-swallowing rough and challenging holes. I’m not used to greens where a small tap of the ball will send it rolling fifteen feet! The highlight was a chip-in on hole five for a very unlikely birdie. 🙂

London Eye

This past Sunday was beautiful in London, we rode the London Eye for some amazing views. It was the first time I’ve seen the new Shard building which looked as dystopian as I imagined it would. 🙂

Funnily enough this is my second ride, the first time was in 2003 and I have little to no memory of it. My expectations were low based on that, but were far exceeded, it’s well worth the experience.
