Spent most of the day down at Bondi Beach (starting at sunrise however the cloud cover prevented the taking of any beautiful shots, collected my thong (see pic below) to compete in the havaianas thong challenge.
Went back just before lunch where we all lined up on the beach to be counted before entering the water with our giant thongs and all joining up to form a human chain to try and break the world record (set at Bondi Beach in 2009!).
But – even though we surpassed the 2009 world record by an amazing 300 people (with 1262 of us!), we were beaten by Cottlesloe Beach in Western Australia who had a whopping 1301! Congratulations WA but hopefully we’ll take the title back next year!
This evening went in to Darling Harbour to watch the Australia Day fireworks and i’ve got to say they were quite possibly the best fireworks i’ve ever seen – even surpassing Sydney’s NYE fireworks display – and that’s saying a lot!
Hope everyone else enjoyed their day as much as I did and we are all extremely lucky to live in this beautiful country. Happy Australia Day!
