Monday 25th April 2016


We had an early start today; 3.15am! Geoff, Lorraine, Meg & I went to the ANZAC Day dawn service, at the War Memorial near the city. We caught the free bus from Woden, & very surprisingly, were able to sit at the ceremony. As always it was a very moving service.

After an egg & bacon breakfast I set out for a walk on Black Mountain (no orchids seen) & a photography opportunity at Mount Ainslie.

In the afternoon we dropped Geoff's sister Lorrie & at the airport then headed out to Gungahlin to meet up with old friends (Ray & Chris), who are in town for a couple of days.

All lined up for the free trip back to Woden or which ever area you came from

Preparing for the ANZAC Day March


I don't go regularly, but the ANZAC day services are good. It is very important to not forget the efforts and huge sacrifices that others have made for us.
