My Tuesday Treasure is actually from yesterday - ANZAC DAY. We went for a drive out to Wynum at the bay for a stroll and some fish and chips for lunch. It was a bit cloudy but that didn't seem to deter all the people who were enjoying their day there. As we strolled along the foreshore we were joined by other couples of all ages, kids delighting in the freedom to ride their bikes, folks walking along with very excited furry 4 leggged children, Dads and kids fishing from the jetty, other kids swimming in the seawater pool and splashing and having the time of their lives. Under the shady trees were families having picnics, Grandads reading the paper in their favourite picnic chair. Games of serious family footy were also taking place. There were people everywhere and all the sounds were joyous and it bought to my mind that all those young diggers came from families just like these who treasured the wonderful freedom living in Australia gives you.
All these people enjoying simple pleasures with friends and loved ones. So I am treasuring my life today as an Australian. Free to enjoy these simple days and not have had to send my beloved son off to a faraway land to fight as so many Mothers had to do and some still have to today. So Bless each and everyone of our Diggers and the sacrifices they have made so we may enjoy this FREEDOM so precious to us all.
Our fish and chips were delicious and we were surrounded by a noisy gaggle of seagulls as Hubby made the mistake of throwing one a chip. As I prepared to share some of my chips with this greedy horde a gull floated up beside me, hovered there and oh so gently removed the chip from my fingers. Didn't snatch! Just did it oh so politely. I offered another one and it did the same (photos to prove it).
