After a chilly start to the day we set out for Wellington. On the outskirts of town we see the balloons stretched across the horizon. The drive was uneventful and the scenery beautiful with the changing colours of the leaves.
We are staying at the Wellington Caves caravan park. About 7 klms out of town. Lovely park very quite with large sites a bit hilly but we have managed.
Early rising this morning so we could attend the dawn service. A chilly start to the day, after the service we were invited back to the soldiers club for breakfast and a hot drink. The club put on a breakfast of savoury mince and toast. Back to the park to wait for the march to start at 10.45 am.
After the march and service at the cenotaph we were once again invited to join the veterans for lunch. A roast dinner, apple slice and custard were served with free alcohol. The hospitality extended to us by everyone made for an excellent Anzac day. So if you are in the area next year you would be most welcome to join in.
Another chilly start to the day but warmed up very quickly and we are all in t-shirts.Not a lot of people in the park. After strolling over to the Japanese gardens, we had a look at the cave in the middle of the park. It is off limits to the public and fenced off.
