Here in the Withnall family we’ve never done much to commemerate Anzac Day – mainly because you’re more often than not away. It’s been around 5 years since we were home. If I had been feeling better we might have done more – watched the march on TV or gone to a dawn service (we’re up early enough anyway). I did have my own little quiet time thinking about our Anzac soldiers and it dawned on my that every Australian generation for quite some time has had a war to deal with – WW1, WW2, Vietnam and now the Iraq war – when will it ever end. So many lives lost.
Later in the day we packed up some lunch…
and headed to Jamberoo Recreation Park (it closes for Winter tomorrow)
It was a little on the cool side so only the girls went in the water.
When they got too cold, they got dressed and went on the toboggan and played putt putt golf – things they’re usually too busy to do.
I drank tea and read some magazines…notice how busy the park is :-).
Kevin listended to an audio book and played Dr. Kev when Christy fell over…
I also enjoyed the flowers…so sad the place shuts tomorrow and no-one will get to enjoy them – beside people who get married here I guess.
So it’s farewell to Jamberoo until next season. It truely feels like Summer is over now.
We headed home just afte 3pm to prepare for our dinner guests…. stay tuned….
