Our Aussie Day weekend (Pt 1) ...

 We had a lovely Australia Day long weekend, starting with our visitors arriving on Friday night.
~
 Saturday morning, I decided to make some lamingtons (Wikipedia definition here) ... First I made a butter cake in a slice tin...
~
 They turned out well but they were a bit hard to work with as the cake was so fresh.  I made a runny chocolate icing mix with icing sugar, cocoa and milk...
~
 ~
 It was a messy job but worth it in the end...
~
 Ta dah!
~
 Lunch was Wagyu sausages and beef shasliks with a salad platter and fresh bread...
~
 then we packed up and headed for McIntyre's beach and set up camp in Ruby and a 3 man tent.
~
 We had all the mod-cons!  Ensuite toilet... haha!
~
 Once again, pizza was on the menu.  This is olive oil, potato, garlic, potato, rosemary, bocconcini  and parmesan cheese...
~
 The cooked product - so tasty.
~
 Then I did a few others with the normal toppings...  They just got better and better!
~
 My pizzeria kitchen...
~
 Sun doing down, glass of red and a slice of pizza!
~
 Gus and Kelvin wanted one last pizza later in the night - this is their sad effort!
~
 Our camp fire kept us warm, although the wind whipped up so it was quite chilly.
~
 Enjoying the coastline...
~
 ~
 Getting that camp 
fire going and sorting out a bottle of red...
~
 Great sunset...
~
 ~
 S'mores for our visitors (I know, not very Australian - but they are yummy) ...
~
 A hot cup of tea next morning...
~
 Scrambled eggs...
~
Bacon and toast cooked on the barby with the eggs...
~
We packed up and headed home, tired and wind blown.
Cheers - Joolz
