Australia Day...and boy am I grateful!

Yes I really am grateful for so much..

Australia Day means different things to lots of different people...to some it's a chance to fly the flag, have a BBQ and generally enjoy the day off work

For me, it's a chance to enjoy and appreciate the people around me and consider myself extremely lucky to be able to call this place home


These guys think it's a pretty good place too, especially when MONT and his mates come in after a day of fishing and they get all the left overs.

No wonder they all look so content.

Congratulations also to the 2011 Australian of the Year, Simon McKeon. A deserving recipient of the award


This is him, pictured with his wife and son...congratulations!
