Australia Day, Valla

Australia Day, Valla

A regatta was held at Chris Wilson place, lots of Australian flags, lots of food and fun.

I handed out the trophy and gave a small speech saying that on this day of all days, we should remind ourselves that this beautiful region where we live is Gumbaynggirr country, and I gave thanks to elders past and present. The Aboriginal Saltwater/Freshwater Festival set for Coffs today was cancelled late in the piece due to a funding shortfall.

In a rain break I admired some of the trees beside the dam, in detail so beautiful.
