Australia Day

This Australia Day I volunteered at the celebrations in the Caboolture Historical Village – where I seem to “hang out” frequently – working on a range of project in the Village.  One recent task was getting the website updated.  A lot of time and effort there and I am happy with our efforts.

There are few photos of me – something I am happy about, as I was dressed as a convict woman and I hate having my photo taken.

It was a full-on day – starting at 8 am and I managed to leave around 3.30 pm I think, totally worn out!!

There were we estimage over 1500 people in attendance – which included paying guests, visitors, volunteers and workers on the stalls.  It had been very wet in the days before the event, and we feared that rain could destroy all our hard work.  The rain held off but the heat was unrelenting.

The lake

 

One thing that was good to see – as a result of the heavy rains – was that the pond and the waterway in the tropical garden was full again.  It had almost dried up and for several months looked like a miserable mud pool.  Great to see it so full and with the fountain working again!  (Without water the fountain doesn’t work!)

We had a few minor dramas – but in the end a very successful day and a great way to celebrate Australia Day.
