It's hard to stay focused on the cricket match when the smell of barbie snags, onions, steaks and rissoles drifts enticingly your way.

Did I really see that?

A motorized ESKY just went whizzing past, pulling a mono.

It's Australia Day in Eden, and the Owen Allan Trophy cricket match is being played at the Eden Sportsground.

The flag has been raised by the 1st Eden Seas Scouts, Allan Gibson has given a stirring Australia Day address, and I've just had the best steak sandwich, courtesy of Essci who are manning the barbecue.
