Australia Day 2012

The Horsham Rural City Council put on the annual Australia Day Ceremony in the Soundshell-Sawyer Park. Our neighbours, Noel and Betty from Horsham, who have rented out their house while they travel in their 5 wheeler invited us to attend the free breakfast at the park.

It was just an easy walk along the river, discussing the damage and the advantages that came with the flood of last year.

A pleasant walk along the river to the park.

The temperature was still cool as we stood in line for our Bacon and egg on toast, orange juice and a tub of fruit, add a nice flat white and we were set to sit and watch the program of events on the stage. The presentation of Australian Day Awards and the Australian Citizenship Ceremony.

It was good to see so many people.

It was nice to see so many people attending, as plenty of volunteers had put together a beaut morning.  Unlike the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast at this moment the day is cloudless and will probably hit the high end of the 30’s. They have such a wide change in temperature here 13-37c. It’s not until about 3pm that it gets so hot the air conditioner goes on, then it peaks between 3-6pm, then drops off to a cool evening with you needing a blanket on. Actually it’s quiet pleasant as we seem to get a breeze most of the time from the river.

I’m sorry our blog is only short pieces, with Chris back working 12 hour days on program development, I’m the one writing the blog. As David commented last night when he rang “About time he got back to work”.
