Canberra

Have had a beautiful day today, wandering around Canberra looking at the War Memorial and the gardens and doing some geocaching.
we stopped here yesterday on our way through.....for a geocache...but was great to finally have a look at the pub here

this is the Centenary Quilt made by volunteers for Aussie Hero Quilts...I mad eone poppy block..this travelled to the Middle East and has been signed by various serving members of the military

this picture was made from US and Vietnamese money folded for the background...the military machines are coming from the West...
Love the poppy wall...left a poppy here for one of hubby's rellies...
