Live coverage of Australia Day 2012
including Darling Harbour fireworks.

Watching the live stream from Darling Harbour brought back memories of the year
 I took my 5' tall, 78 year old mother to the Australia Day fireworks.

A pack of 6' tall teenagers formed a circle around her
 to protect her from the jostling crowd.

  C'mon Grandma we'll look after you, they said.
Stand clear, Grandma coming through, they yelled.
Laughter all round. AusDay, 1996.

I love the view... ^^

Trying to decide on a cruise for later in the year. A Diamond Princess cruise looks good, departing from Yokohama, Japan on a 15 night round...
