25 Apr We Shall Remember Them
Anzac Day 2013
ANZAC Day is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as ANZACs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Today’s iCandy – Yellow on Yellow
On my way to Mount Field National Park in Tasmania to hopefully catch the tuning of the Fagus and I had to pull over and grab a shot of these amazing trees. Unfortunately the Waterfalls are not flowing as much as they normally do due to the lack of rain in these parts but I am looking forward to heading up to the Tarn Shelf today to see if the Fagus has come to life.
