These three photos were all taken 25 April, or Anzac Day. The dawn service here was held outside the surf club looking out over the ocean to the east. It was pitch black when I walked there with only a beautiful skinny crescent moon and Venus to light my way. I think all who attended were moved by the short service.

|A little while later the sun was well and truly lighting up the coast. I did not get wet taking this photo, as this is a small, temporary pond created by previous heavy rain and it is not there now.|
