Australia Day Celebrations 26th Jan 2011

What a great day. I had visitors from Sydney and the UK staying with me at Two Rocks. We had a reunion as all of us went to the same high school in Cornwall. We set up our flags, bunting and banners around the house and garden, put on our temporary tattoos (which actually were difficult to remove) and then we set off to walk to out local community hall for the Australian Breakfast.

The volunteers did a fantastic job of serving up bacon, sausage, egg, beans, tomato, toast and orange juice to many people who live in Yanchep and Two Rocks. While we were having our breakfast a couple of people came and sat opposite and we started chatting. We told the lady that we went to school together in Cornwall. She asked which school and when we told her she nearly fell off her chair. She went to the same school: Camborne Grammar School for girls. What a coincidence!
