We went down to the Gold Coast with a few friends for a BBQ lunch. It was packed with people but it was such a great atmosphere. There were Australian flags, people with green and gold wigs (Aussie colours), Australian flag temporary tattoos (girls wearing Aussie flag bikinis - one year I will get one).
I didn't get to take too many photos as I was having a good time relaxing under the shade and chatting away. The weather was amazing! The day was just perfect. Beautiful blue skies and warm temperature. It's what I expect Queensland to look and feel like. The water at the beach felt so refreshing too, though I'm a touch red in the face from too much sun.
This is just a random shot of people around us with their shade set up. In the background some kids set up a slip and slide and there's a giant green and gold beach ball (which I really wanted).
You need to have a BBQ on Aussie Day!
Our pretty towels lined up. We didn't bother lining up the guys' towels, they were in the water by then.
Me, Claire and Laura. This was at the end of the day.
I hope all my fellow Aussies out there had a fantastic day!!
P.S. Thanks again for your comments about our one year wedding anniversary!
