Another anniversary date I didn’t want to omit acknowledging.
Western Australia Day was called Foundation Day when I was a kid, and we always had special assemblies on the day. The name was changed to Western Australian day in the 1990s, after I left Australia, as the old name had come to be considered insensitive to the aboriginals who have always been there.
Whatever the name, the day is celebrating one of the best locations in the world, and one of the best kept secrets. Even the tourists who do make it all the way to Australia rarely manage to get over to the western side, which is very different from that other place in the east. 🙂
I’m just a tad biased.
…and oh, I miss the beaches there!
