Photo a Day Challenge - Day 26 Colour

Today is Australia Day, and is celebrated by all, generally with a BBQ. Australia Day, 26 January, is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788 . There is also the Australian Day Awards, where extraordinary people are rewarded for what they have done, both to the community and to Australia as a whole.

It is also a day of throwing a 'snag' on the barbie, or lamb! Lately, Sam Kekovich releases a new video!

BUT, there is also another side to 'Australia Day', and that is to the indigenous - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, to which I would like to pay my respect to, both past and present.

So, its been a colourful day, both Sam's video and the colours of the flags above. I hope you have had a great Australia Day!

Hoo roo for now...
