Robs Birthday Photofile number one of two
Wed 6 May 2020 02:25
Rob’s Birthday morning spent with our dear friends Kathy and Jeremy will go down in our memories as being our first social get together for more than a chat following the relaxing of Western Australia’s lockdown rules. We went for a lovely walk around the nearby golf course in warm sunshine, passing fields where the local mob of kangaroos relaxed on the soft new green grass. They recline just as humans would, sometimes resting on one elbow while laying on their sides and they weren’t at all fussed by us walking by.
The barbecue area at Princess Royal Yacht Club was our venue for the picnic. Sal Darago, Jeremy and Kathy’s Westerly Solway Yacht home is moored in the Yacht Club marina. We maintained the one and a half metre social distancing rule by sitting poised at the four corners of the lovely big table you see in the photos and tucked into Prosecco, sandwiches, home-made beetroot hummus with parmesan and truffle oil crisps followed by a yummy vegan chocolate and raspberry cake. The wind grew from non-existent to slight but even then didn’t allow all 7 of the candles to stay alight. (One candle for each decade and one for luck, Rob turned 62)
The only negative was that because of the distancing rules we couldn’t take Jeremy and Kathy with us in the car to the wind farm, but maybe we will some day in the uncertain future.
