Horse racing @ Doomben




Straight after arriving from Tokyo
we all went to the Doomben Races. 
It was a very fine day indeed. 













Race #7, Horse #8. 
Thank you for winning ! 




After Doomben,  we hosted a dinner party
at Riding Road. 










By request, lamb chops. 





Also by request, I had just purchased an electric grill plate. 
It worked perfectly - happy, happy. 





Chikako bought some green tea cake from Japan
for dessert. 


Dinner went well.
