  • Aussie Day on Perth Water

    Hi guys,

    I'm posting this belatedly due to problems accessing the site late last month. Australia Day celebrations are a big thing here in Perth. Usually we've watched the fireworks from my girlfriend's friend's apartment which overlooks Perth Water (which is what the Swan River is referred to immediately in front of Perth CBD). Every year I look at the boats and wonder if next year I'll make the effort to be one of them. This year, the girl insisted... do I mustered my tolerance for bogans and put in upstream at Maylands around 3pm. We motored downstream to the South Perth side of the river where there were less boats, chucked the anchor in and watched the various planes, jets, choppers and such while grazing from the Esky.










    Cheers,
    Steve

    Q: Why does it take SOOO long to put pills in a bottle?!?!

    A: Pills in a bottle is the easy part! The making sure it doesn't KILL you is the part that takes an extra second or two!

      Looks like a good time, Steve!

      I was sent photos by my sister; she lives in Subiaco. I was to head over for a few weeks in March but a hockey injury but a damper on that. :(
      Next year for sure!! It's gorgeous there!

                Very cool. It's neat seeing your flag on your boat and other things related to your country.

                      Great pics there Steve. I love the dark sunset shot (no. 6). I've often thought about cruising up the Yarra in Melbourne to catch the fireworks at Docklands. You might have inspired me....

                        No celebration this year. It's extremely lucky that the plane ditched clear of the flotilla and crowded foreshore.
