Our Australia Day ! Phew what a Hot one!

                                  Have you heard the saying a 100 degrees in the shade ! 
                         Well today it was more like 110 degrees in the shade!

                           So what else was there to do but swim ,eat
                           and have few cold ones or in my case and the
                           ladies it a couple of low alcohol Champagnes

It was so hot the candles melted without being lit ,we are used to it but this is hot even for us!

This is the Aussie Male in his natural habitat ,the Flag tshirts provide camouflage ,and the obligatory stubby holder ,plus the baggy green cap (cricket cap)

And then Swimming,swimming and more swimming!
What a nice place for a Siesta ,I did not get one but I was eyeing it off!

Home now in the air conditioning its 9.50pm and still 25 degrees(75F)
