Memorial carvings at Legerwood

All carved from the stumps and branches left

Morning tea down from carvings

View from our caravan

Sunday 12th, walked up town to go to a Christian Fellowship Church. A lovely service. Had a restful afternoon.

Ann had her first win at cards, that makes girls 2, and boys about 20. They have to be getting up to something.

Monday 13th, we moved on to Bridport. A pretty drive, but very winding roads, much care taken.

We drove into Legerwood, had been told to see the memorial carvings there. The local people planted trees after the war to commerate those who had died from the local area. Many years later these trees died, so they commissioned a man to carve the large stumps and branches in memory of the men who died. He did an amazing job, it took him 9 months. This has put the community of Legerwood on the tourist map. There are only a few houses, a cafe and a garage.

The Caravan Park is the longest one we have seen, goes for at least 1km along the beach. Very pretty outlook from our vans, and can walk to a number of small beaches.

Wow!! Ann won cards again tonight, maybe things are looking up for the girls.

Love Dawn
