happy Australia day!!

Greetings all,
Happy Australia Day!!  
We're celebrating with banana smoothies, lamingtons & Australia-shaped watermelons - a surprisingly good taste combination.
 Looking through snaps on my phone - i found this quintessential Australian landscape shot, across Lake George, on the curve of the home stretch into Canberra.  To me, a Sydney girl, this is now very much my home, in my heart & my mind.  
 Of course, Canberra is the only inland capital city in Australia, so a trip to the beach isn't happening today, although it is scorching hot today.  Our Christmas holiday stay on the water in Yamba, North Coast NSW, is a memory, a very happy one.  We'll always have our Basil Bangs beach umbrella though, i could gaze at that fringing all day, actually i did!! 
Have a gorgeous long weekend Australians, love Posie
