12/11/2016 Catching up from yesterday - Remembrance Day
Maximum temperature 15C, minimum 1C. 36 km/h NW wind. 7mm of rain measured yesterday morning, and no rain during the day, so none measured this morning.
The church service was held first...
then the service at the memorial..
The wreath has just been laid.
A donkey in a close-by paddock reminded us not to forget him as well :-)
We then proceeded to the luncheon...
where we had a small exhibition.
The menu which is mainly cooked by the local committee with home grown vegetables..
The vegetable soup.
The fish was served in foil envelopes which was delicious but did not make for good photos.
The main course was help yourself from the tureen....
and potatoes arrived in a separate bowl. All made easy to allow the ladies in the kitchen to sit down and enjoy a meal as well.
I forgot a photo of the salad and the cheese!!!
and finally the dessert.
No shortage of wine was also served with the meal.
