Making A Day Of It


Australia Day celabrations down our way followed a very traditional formula. One of the small side streets got blocked off with wheely bins and the ubiquitous game of street cricket ensued. Anyone who wanted to play was in regardless of gender, age or ability. 



Naturally, someone fired up the barbie and we all had a feast.


And as the sun went down and the music was turned up, some of us slipped off to watch the tennis, some of us went to bed and those that were left partied on into the warm Brisbane night.

The community spirit is tangible through your post again Cara, makes it seem like having the odd natural disaster is almost worthwhile!
