Missbossy Meanders... SINGAPORE

Saturday 3-May-03

Afternoon practice with the Dragon Boating Team of breast cancer survivors & their supporters! We spent 3:30pm - 5:30pm enjoying the lovely smells of the Kallang River and the lovely sounds of Nancy's voice. We learned that mosquitoes have paddles and that TIMING IS EVERYTHING!!!

HERE WE GO | PADDLING | COOL DOWN (and group shots)
