Happy Australia Day everyone. It's the day we celebrate everything that's great about living here and the day in 1788 when Captain Arthur Phillip, commander of the First Fleet of eleven convict ships from Great Britain and the first governor of New South Wales, arrived at Sydney Cove. The raising of the Union Jack there symbolised British occupation of the eastern half of the continent claimed by Captain James Cook on 22 August in 1770.
On to today's shot. Here's a mojito with the green of the mint leaves and gold or yellow of the lime, nicely sitting inside the white rum concoction. It's also a toast to the mighty socceroos that won 6 nil to reach the finals of the Asian Cup. Ooi Ooi Ooi! More tomorrow.
