What with Mr Howards's (not-)kicking of multiculturalism, I was feeling a bit bah-humbug about Australia Day. But hey, it's a day off work, and I did wander down to Commonwealth Park with friends on Friday.
We happened across a display by the Canberra & District Historic Engine Club.
I was mesmerised by the many spinning wheels (oh no, not that kind, my fibre-mad friends).
That was also where I found this little pen of sheep. With one dog up the back to keep them in line.
And who could resist this cuddly calf at the petting zoo?
