anzac day 2011
We've had an extra long Easter break here due to the Anzac Day holiday coinciding with Easter. Today was Anzac Day, which commemorates the landing of Australian troops at Gallipoli during the first World War. For my overseas readers, Anzac Day is the Australian and New Zealand version of Remembrance Day.
We like to claim Gallipoli as own own but many troops from many nations died there. I watched the parade in Dungog, a tiny little place but one which would have seen many of it's young men leaving to serve in the War. I took quite a few photos but the 4 hour drive back to Sydney in pouring rain has tired me out a bit, so I'll post the images later in the week.
I hope you enjoyed your Easter break. I'll be back tomorrow with some baking so I'll see you all then,
