Blessing the Fleet in Mandurah

OK, I know the Blog is called Gone Bush in a BT but it's summer and we stay at home.

Today was the annual Blessing of the Fleet here in Mandurah. All sorts of boats, big and small, commercial and pleasure craft, go out into the estuary to form a parade and file past the local dignitaries including the religious heads in town.

We get sprinkled with holy water (got to be a good thing) and the boating season gets underway.

Even the Channel 7 helicopter was hovering around.
