Dressed and decorated to the nines, Sydney’s beloved First Fleet ferries lined up for the Australian Day Ferrython as part of the Sydney Festival. I think we may have been on the luckiest boat, The Streets Gaytime Ferry, with colourful lamingtons and an endless flow of icecream.

The harbour was a place of colour and celebration as we raced to try and claim first place. We came second, and congratulations to the 2016 winner Meriton!
Thankfully the weather stayed calm and we had some blue skies. With the foreshore lined with people it was indeed a colourful and wonderful day. As I type this I’m still rocking and haven't found my land legs yet! Those ferries can motor when they have to!

Thanks to Streets Ice Cream for inviting us to join in on this fabulous celebration.
