a bit of Australia Day

a bit of AustraliaNew Quay stuffToday I spent my afternoon with Yasue, cruisin’ around various cityside venues, checking out their potential for her wedding later this year. It just goes to show, you don’t have to live within 500 metres to explore a new area. At least we didn’t end up like the cow from Hey diddle diddle.

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen Australians in the wild before, but next time you do, just remember these 4 simple rules:

  1. Keep us outside, preferably near the beach
  2. Cook us something on a barbecue
  3. Talk about sport, and
  4. Give us a beer

It’s really very simple, and I can guarantee you will get bonus points if you also feed us lamingtons or fairy bread.

Happy Australia Day!

I hadn’t seen Craig since climbing days in Squamish! After the fireworks display, we stuffed ourselves at the Blue Train CafĂ© and chatted until the last train took me home.
