Christmas Sunset

On Sunday 6th December, the Cottesloe Coastcarers exchanged buckets of water, shovels and gardening gloves for glasses of wine, picnic blankets and a football as we gathered on the lawn of the Cottesloe Civic Centre for our annual christmas party. The hidden culinary talents of the group were showcased with a wonderful variety of food bought to share. From quiches, Robyn's salad and Frauke and Sue's home made dips to Christmas tree shortbread biscuits, our tastebuds were certainly treated.

Not to be outdone, Cottesloe put on a spectacular sunset providing a beautiful backdrop for the evening. With a prominent topic of evening conversation being Keith and Frauke's imminent (and enviable) trip to Iceland to see the Northern lights, some of us quietly wondered whether they could possibly be better than the lights in the sky at Cottesloe that evening.

The conversation flowed freely between Councillors (thanks to Greg Boland and Pat Carmichael), contractors and CCA volunteers as we all reflected on the wonderful progress we made this year. Hot topics of the evening included Megan's successful completion of her PhD and how much Frauke's grandchildren had grown in a year. A huge thank you to Robyn, Frauke and Mike for organising such a wonderful evening. Along with the AGM, I look forward to the CCA Christmas Party every year.
