So we saw the practice for the changing of the colours for the 5th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment yesterday. Today we watch the real thing with the guest of honour being His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), the Governor General of Australia.
There is always one AFL game per year at Darwin and it was today. Bob has never been to a live AFL game and the experience was enjoyable. The game was between Melbourne and the Adelaide Crows. The Crows won by 2 points. Conclusion – unless you have 20:20 vision and can see details of the play at 150 metres plus, stay at home and watch the game on the telly !
