Australia Day 2012

The forecast for Australia Day this year was like every other day in January. Rain. We'd hoped to be able to set up the gazebo on the grass at Coogee again but with dark clouds on the horizon we agreed to meet at the Palace hotel instead. With Katie, Dan and Hugo, AJ, Philippa and Jack, Peter and Denise and Nick and Beth it was soon pretty crazy with all the kids climbing on and off the tables, but eventually the sun came out and I took Emily up to the playground so she could climb without being told off by security guards. Then the rain came back and we dashed for cover at the Palace where Nick and Beth were happily settling in for a session. Finally just as we were thinking of heading home the sun came out - perfect for a late afternoon dip.
