Bathing, boating, batting, barbecue and best friends.
That's what our annual Australia Day celebrations involve.
This year we gathered at Waranga Basin, Rushworth.
The boys were given a ride in a special boat by it's owner who was set up with his family and friends beside us at the water's edge.
The other boys managed to play for hours in the "sand" when they weren't in the water.
Of course, on the drive to the Basin and back home, derigeur was the small Australian flag flapping madly out the car window. Flags proudly sprout up from boats and out truck windows everywhere on this day.
