"for 30 minutes you would have heard a pin drop.....it was so still and quiet......"
"Lest we Forget"
|In the daylight you began to appreciate the size of the crowd|
|Just an amazing experience.|
|Those serving at the moment were not forgotten either|
|At the conclusion of the service people swarmed around the shrine.|
Then in the afternoon the annual Anzac Day Sale to Bairnsdale bike race
A local cycling tradition is the Sale to Bairnsdale bike race. This year it was well represented by riders from Melbounre, and big groups from both Warragul and the Latrobe Valley. The race was very hilly today and the four bunches were together as they passed me, but the race was going to get much tougher before the end.
Pics will be up on Facebook
