Cup Day

Our first Tuesday in November, Melbourne Cup Day, (and State of Victoria public holiday) was spent at home organizing Halloween candy and watching the “race that stops a nation.” 

We saw many champagne flutes and fascinators fluttering about the marquees.  Then the horses appeared.  3 minutes later it was over.  Americain, our obvious choice, came in fourth despite being the favorite… and the winner?  He won by a nose or rather, a nostril.
