This was to be my first Australia Day, and I was quite excited. I had already seen many of John’s photos of the event in years past and knew as much as I love fireworks, I was in for a real treat.
We went into Perth way before the fireworks however.
The first thing I learned is that Australians love their flag.
Because I was enjoying it, I asked John to get the video recorder. I didn’t expect a fan of the band to want to be part of the filming.
There were planes flying by.
Then came another flying object…
This was all leading up to the day that I was most excited about, the fireworks, proof, that I might do anything for fireworks. This was a HOT day, but John took very good care of me. Plenty to drink and lots of SPF 30 suntan lotion applied every two hours.
Next, the fireworks.
