On my last post John mentioned the pictures of the beach. I really posted them to show the balls of sand and the clusters of crabs and didn't feel it was a great example of the beach. So considering tomorrow is Australia day I thought I would post some classic Aussie images.
Australia Day is the day we celebrate the first fleet arrival in Sydney cove in 1788. There is an official ceremony in which high achieving Australians are given awards for there incredible efforts. This year Geoffrey Rush is Australian of the year. Some parts of the community prefer that non celebrity Australians are recipients but I guess every one should be entitled. There is also the controversial issue of our indigenous Australians calling it invasion day.
In general though, Australians spend the day with family and friends having Barbies, going to the beach and celebrating being Aussie.
Below are a series of photos showing a typical day at a surf beach. This is Inverloch where we have spent our holiday, only an hour and a half from where we live.
I would like to acknowledge the original owners of this land the Bunurong People.
Well our last day of holiday was a beauty, lots of sun, sand and surf.......not that we are the surfing types but a boogie board is always fun, I was talked into doing a bit of body surfing which is always a laugh as long as you don't get dunked. The last water photo is there to give you the scale of the waves. Not huge by surfers standards but big enough for me.
Happy mini's every one!
Bye for now.
