An Offer Too Good To Refuse

When Mick called to say he would be free to have lunch today, who was I to refuse, as this happens very rarely.  We just had a sandwich in Kings Parade in the centre of town.

This is a lovely park, and as locals, I think we take it for granted.

It contains several monuments.  This is the Boer War Memorial, which  celebrated its centenary last week.

It is surrounded by a garden of Peace roses and rosemary.

In the background is the war memorial Carillon, where the Anzac Day Dawn Service is held.

I do love to visit the old parks in the bigger towns. They usually have lovely mature trees and pavillions and such. Your park looks lovely.
