Weekly Photo Challenge : Forward

Here they come, here they come...

Here they come, here they come…

It is March 2010 and we are setting off on our round Australia trip. The first stop from home was Stanthorpe. The annual apple and grape festival weekend was in full swing.

Then on the Saturday of the big street parade it rained 😦

But did this dampen anyone’s enthusiasm? No way. Out came the raincoats, up went the umbrellas and every one looked forward to the parade.

These are only a few of the participants in the parade. Every club and sporting body had a float and there were at least 6 bands interspersed between them and marching girls, clowns, dancers and acrobats cavorting to the music. It took almost 30 minutes for the parade to pass by. Fantastic fun.

It was a great weekend and a memorable start to our one year, 37,000 kilometre road trip.

We were also looking forward to this trip of a life-time.
