Australia Day Celebration 2011!!!

What a lovely time we've had celebrating our country's national day!

Russ and I went along to see Jimmy Barnes (lead singer in 80's Australian iconic band - Cold Chisel) who played at our local Entertainment Centre last night.

Fantastic concert - very loud, very rock and roll and very Australian!!!! We have seen him perform at A Day on the Green outdoor venue concerts before, and even though the years have passed, he still can crank out a great song (especially our favourites: Khe San, Driving Wheels & Working Class Man)! We thoroughly enjoyed it, and were pleasantly surprised to see that the 'oldies' in the audience like us outnumbered the younger crowd. And boy, can we still ROCK!!!

A very hot and humid Australia Day today: started off for us with a coffee down at the local river boat ramp with Zac (our dog) and then down to the beach where it was a tiny bit cooler and Zac could have a run in the waves.

A lovely end to a lovely day saw us back at the beach this afternoon for a cool swim before a refreshing southerly popped up to cool things off.

Tomorrow, it's back to normal which means back to work for both of us, while I'm also cutting out and trimming mohair for new bears!
