We Are Australian!

Dressed in my Aussie colours – the flag and the green and gold of the wattle – and happily celebrating Australia Day 2019

The good people of Capo and some friends from elsewhere on the mountain proved our pride in being Australian by celebrating Australia in fine style with a drinks-and-nibblies under the pergola.

We decided it was just too hot for a lunch right now so we gathered at 4pm to sing Aussie songs, recite Aussie poetry (and some Pommie stuff too – though I doubt Dylan Thomas would care for being called a Pom, don’t you, Robin!) and compete in teams in an Aussie quiz for a prize of – you guessed it – lamingtons! (Well, as I donated the prize I can now reveal that it was either that or a jar of Vegemite of a Violet Crumble!).  We also ate and drank a lot.

It was a beautiful, breezy evening by the pond and I’ll let the pictures tell the story:

About Tamborine Dreamer

I am a horticulturist, writer and photographer who lives on Tamborine Mountain, one of the world's beautiful places to live with plenty of sunshine, good rainfall, moderate temperatures, lush rainforest, splendid views of both the ocean to the east and the mountains to the west. I love writing about the place in which I live, in all its moods and seasons. Besides gardening I love good literature and poetry, bushwalking, birdwatching, history, Japanese language and culture, and music of several kinds.
