Australia Day Rundown

A lovely day was spent at out family shack by the beach yesterday. Friends, family & a relaxing day, with beef & lamb done on the weber, fresh salads and desserts to die for - lamingtons, chocolate cake and chocolate raspberry pavlova.

Here's some photos Andrew took during the day.

My nephew Josh mowing the lawn with the Victa, under the Hills Hoist which was displaying the Australian Flag. This was actually in no way staged and Andrew has entered it into the Mercury Newspaper's "A Day in the Life of Tasmania" photo essay.

Josh the Barman - or should that be "Bar Boy?"

Patriotic "Australian" Chocolate Cake, Lamingtons, Cream and Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova.

Me putting the finishing touches to the pavlova.

Me striking a silly pose with the pavlova. First pav I've made in years and it was soooo good!


  1. You're a crack-up, Son! Yes, that top photo is almost iconic. And snap! I made a pavlova with raspberries as well. J x

  2. Thanks Jane. It's just not Australia Day without a pav!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I read all your comments and try to respond to them all individually, if I don't I hope you understand :)
