I hadn't seen the emu plumes in the slouch hat before, the story goes like THIS. I was so pleased that we did make it to the Remembrance Day Service in Kings Park yesterday. Not surprisingly a much smaller crowd than usual and although WA is lucky to be free of Covid at this point, social distancing to some degree is still practiced. The kookaburras in Kings Park were raucous but can you believe at 11am during the minute of silence, they also fell silent.. you might not believe me but it happened :)
Below the big guns were out, made my Olympus look a wee bit puny :)
As well as Remembrance Day yesterday it would also have been my father's birthday, always remembered and very much missed. We take great care to remember the young men and women who die in battle but we often forget those who come home. To experience the horrors of war is something that most of us couldn't even begin to imagine and must leave a profound effect on those once happy, carefree young souls, one that many can sadly never forget . Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
