Australia Day - Balnarring Cup

Yesterday was Australia Day - a day the Nation celebrates annually which commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788. We have a public holiday to celebrate the day and the same day is shared by the Balnarring Cup - the big horse race for the picnic racing season at Balnarring Picnic Racing Club.

So we packed up the trailer with shelters, tables, chairs, food and grog and headed down to the races for another relaxing day watching the horses run and catching up with family and good friends.

The day started out quite cold and overcast....

Bacon and eggs for breakfast once we were all set up.

Everyone started to arrive, cricket was played, chatting and catching up, face painting, lollipops, some drinks (of course) and now and then there was a horse race !

As far a winning riches on the nags - that didn't happened but it was a good day!!
