Happy and shiny

A bit of excitement here in Apollo Bay this morning! The Melbourne Cup made an appearance at the tourist information centre. We thought we'd better go and have a look, and I'm glad we did.
It's big, it's heavy, and it's 18 carat gold (surely that must be plated).
Somehow doing something like this turns the adults into big kids!

Yeah, that's my old bloke looking a bit overwhelmed!

And this is Max and Oscar, lovely, lovely boys of our good friends Lucy and Steve, looking a bit underwhelmed!
