Australia Day

On Monday the 26th January, it was Australia Day and our first experience of such a phenomenon! A few days before, we noticed people flying Ozzie flags from their cars and then more and more flags appeared even from balconies, gardens, shops and everywhere. It is a day of great celebration and most of Perth makes their way, either tothe city or some other designated spot on the coast, to picnic or barbeque and generally marinate themselves while awaiting the fireworks show.

We avoided the masses in the city and went to Quinns Beach, north of the city, had a picnic and the kids swam.We took a short walk to Mindarie Keys, a marina with hotel, pubs and restaurants. A lovely day all in all!

About Me

To go or not to go? That is the question that has plagued our family for years. Throwing all fears and caution aside, Ali and I did a rekkie of Perth and decided to make the break! The team was headed by a very enthusiastic Chris who squashed any doubt or indecision by threatening to go on his own if need be! It was by no means an easy decision as both Ali and I had to make heart-wrenching decisions to leave our most loved family members behind!Always hoping they will follow, though! So, on the 26th December 2008, our family flew to 'greener pastures'.
