Happy Australia day

Recommended Posts

218 years ago today Arthur Phillip and his band of merry men stole a little country away from the indigenious people to start the penal colony of New South Wales.

 

By the way it's a public holiday here today, have a good day at work people. :huh::search::o

That passes for culture down under.

I dunno what Redcar's like for culture but there's no way, coming from Newcastle, I'd take the piss out of anywhere else in cultural terms. Except Cornwall.

Fair comment, glass houses and all that but at least our whole country isn't like that.

I've got family from Devon and Cornwall, it was a joke aimed at my favourite West Country yokel AF. It's a really nice place though, I agree. Explains a lot about Gemmill though.

That was probably the 3 kangaroos that are opposite our building.

 

For me i worked about 13 hours on Australia day and then went to the roof of our building to take photos and here are some photos throughout the day.
