A day off today, we spent it with family and friends, we ventured just 5km's up the road to "The Dag Sheep Station" to join friends to celebrate Australia.
The billing boiled as we watched a shearing demo using a shearing machine which is over 100 years old and powered by man power - and in this case Sebastian power. Hot roast lamb rolls were on the menu along with Lamingtons and a cold beer to wash it all down with - ( a Lamington is a cube of butter cake dipped in chocolate icing and rolled in coconut.) We listen to a bush poet, sharing stories of out back Australia.
Hope you have had a great day, Happy Australia Day, hope you have enjoyed a small glimpse of my day.
