Today, Akela took Wilbur with her to the Australia Day celebrations at Carisbrooke Reserve. Mawson Lakes Scout Group was doing the flag rising at 9:30am. We also were getting a donation for ensuring the reserve was kept clear of rubbish as well as any of the cans and bottles for their deposits. The day started at 8am and finished around 4pm for the scouts, although the activities finished at 3pm for the general public.
Akela and Wilbur did the morning and left just after lunch as they were once again going to the cricket at Adelaide Oval. It was the One Day game (50 over a side) between Australia and England. Due to our morning commitments, we got seats saved for us by Akela’s cousin and uncle….on the boundary. It was very close to the action and I think Akela spent some time checking out the players from both teams (they are very tall! Especially Kevin Peterisen, the English player). Australia lost the game, but it was a good night out though…..a long day and Wilbur was very tired when he got home.
