Anzac Day Noosa 2011

As we do each Anzac Day, Captain V and I attended the Dawn Service and then made our way to the beach to see the sun rise and have our own private reflection on what this day is about.

To those valiant men and women who have served our wonderful country in the past and at this time and to those who love and care for them, I send you a heart felt thank you.

"They shall not grow 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."


  1. Oh yeah! you are back. Love the pictures - the sky and beach is just gorgeous and of course the heartfelt message that goes with it is just as lovely. I always get a little teary on Anzac Day. I just feel so thankful for the life we have now. Looking great Felicity. Naomi x

  2. Thanks gorgeous, so lovely how you celebrate this day. Thanks also for the personal email regarding my situation with a serving soldier in my life. It's always very emotional in my family, thank you so very much for thinking of me. Love Posie

  3. Hi Felicity lovely to have you back in blog land. Beautiful collage of photos.

  4. Hi dearest sweet Fizz, how are you mu friend? I like your mosaic a lot. The sky can be so beautiful and calming.
    Fizz, I totally forgot about sending my pictures for your wonderful six s tour. I am very sorry and I really hope you will not get into trouble about publishing. I am back home May 7th. Will email you right away that day.
    At the moment we landed in Hershey, our trip has been amazing so far.
    Have a bright and joyful Easter Monday!
    Much love always xxxxxx

  5. Beautiful pictures, Felicity. I've never been to a dawn service. I will sure try to go next year...and take the children too.

    I'm so glad you're back. I have missed you and been wondering how you are.
    So, how are you?


  6. Hi Felicity. Such beautiful photos and sentiment. I find myself being so moved when I do attend the service. Aiming to make a Dawn one in the future. Hope all is well.

  14. Hey Felicity - please let me in on how you made your photo montage - I spent over an hour trying to get this right and failed horribly. So much easier inserting this one block than a whole lot of photos!! Please??


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
Each new comment is a gift - unexpected and lovely.
Although I'd love to reply to each and every one, this isn't always possible, but know that I read and appreciate them all.
