Happy Australia Day to all & thanks for your wishes from our Kiwi cousins.

On this day last year we were in Dunedin on our Radiance OTS cruise.

We are just heading off now for a traditional Australia Day - drinks, food and company of relatives and friends. Oh, and of course beating the Poms in cricket

Looks like they need traffic lights on Sydney Harbour today.
What a busy day
Those cruisers on Pacific Jewel and Pearl will be getting a fabulous view of all the proceedings.

Thanks for posting these David.
That is HMAS Choules in the photo above and the Navy daughter just complained that it is blocking her view of the events happening on the harbour.
I wouldn't mind working today with that view.
Regards Elaine.

Hasnt been the best weather this weekend in Sydney. Quite windy and cold last night. Cool and overcast today. No doubt those onboard the Jewel & Pearl are still having a good time though.
