HMS Buffalo

Last Sunday (28th December) was Proclamation Day; a commemorative day for South Australians because on that day in 1836 the settlers were notified that the government was in place in the new 'Province of South Australia'.

This is a model of the Buffalo at the end of Jetty Road at Glenelg; this was the boat that brought colonists including our first governor here.

You can see more in my earlier posts Proclamation Day and The Buffalo Restaurant.

It is a beautiful model, Gordon. And the read was good too. Nice post for today.

Happy New Year to you and your family from Patty and Abe.

Happy New Year Gordon. I have learned a lot about your part of the country this year and hope to learn more in 2009.

I think it's great that you took all these pictures yourself! Too often people just copy and paste them into their blog from other sites.

Very original!
