what I’ve been up to!

I’ve been having a fun, relaxing time.  Again, I’ll let my photographs do the talking.

A return trip to our favourite get-away, Sunshine Beach, Queeensland. We arrived as Cyclone Ita stormed out to sea off Far North Queensland, whipping its tail around the southern coast of the state (photo of sunrise from our
balcony).  It all blew away, leaving us plenty of sunshine, long walks along the beach, delicious dining, and a memorable “blood moon” eclipse floated in the sky as we sipped wine at the Sunshine Beach Surf Life Saving Club.

Last Friday, 25 April, was ANZAC Day (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps) which commemorates the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915, and remembers all Australians who served and died in wars.  I marched with my Father’s regiment, the 9th Division Cavalry, up to the Shrine of Remembrance. Immediately up front of our division was the fabulous Rats of Tobruk Pipe Band.  I’ve marched every year since my Dad passed away – a most humbling experience.

Afterwards, I drove to Flinders for a relaxing weekend at my friends’ property “Ardrossan” – picturesque all year round.  On this occasion, at its autumnal best.
