Fair weather for blessing of the fleet
More than 500 people turned out for Sunday’s Blessing of the Fleet at Augusta Boat Harbour.
As a big event on the local calendar, traders were pleased with the gathering, framed by a giant inflatable humpback whale and calf.
Augusta Chamber of Commerce president Sue Beilken said it was “great to see so many people with smiles on their faces enjoying the day”.
The event showcased the beauty and attraction of Augusta, with the magnificent weather providing perfect conditions to promote the town, she said, and thanked all involved in making it a success.
The annual blessing was co-ordinated by the chamber with the Department of Transport, Margaret River-Busselton Tourism Association, Augusta’s Bendigo Bank, and the Leeuwin Lions Club.
