Regatta fail and jogging at noon (also a fail)

Today was a lot of fun. We made some scrapbook pages with Nicole and filled them with pictures from last year. I might take a picture of them tomorrow and add it in the end of this post. They look pretty awesome.

After that I went jogging, which turned out to be a big mistake, 'cause it was SO hot outside. But as Martin said - sport is never a mistake and I guess he might be right. I ran around the block, which is a bit more than half a mile (that's what Aileen said). If one mile is like 1,6 kilometers, then one lap is approximately 1 kilometer (0,6*1,6) and I ran 3 laps around the block, I ran like three kilometers, which isn't that bad. Right when I finished, it started raining and the rain turned into a thunderstorm. I actually like thunderstorms, so I didn't mind it at all, but it wasn't the right time for it.

Chris promised to take me to a regatta, which started at six o'clock and though the said the storm will be over by that time, we couldn't be sure. So Chris took me down to Annapolis and by the time we got there it had stopped raining, but there also was no wind. Sailing means wind so the things didn't look very good. We still took off the covers and the weather got better in a while, but by the time there was a nice wind, there was no-one to sail with. So we just had fun without sailing.

When we got back, we took out a puzzle and tried to solve it. It has lighthouses from all over the world and there's actually one from Estonia. Kõpu, which is written as Kopu, because Americans or whoever made this puzzle, didn't happen to have an õ. How sad. Kõpu sounds a lot better, in my opinion.

I didn't get a chance to play Black Ops with Jake which means I did not get killed by anybody today, but I hope we can manage that tomorrow. I actually tend to like Black Ops, though I still suck at it.

Some pictures I found from my camera:

 The Bay Bridge, which is just a bit bigger than our bridges in Tartu, right? 
They have coin machines in US, but they also have a prize for you, if you guess how much money you put in there. So we cheated a little and counted it before taking it to the bank. And guess what, it was a lot of money. You can pretty much add it up yourself, 'cause we separated all the pennies, nickels, quarters and dimes.
Annapolis Mall with Mom :)
 In US, it is possible

I just like this one :D
