Canberra - part one

Dearest Mom and Dad

So after George was dropped off at the dog sitter,  Charlotte was left for Jane to feed and my medication was taken we were off!!!!!!


We landed in a chilly and very neat and tidy Canberra airport.


Gorgeous Gareth was at the airport to pick us up - a little anxious for time as he had to be somewhere for an interview with the local tv.


After all that, we went for lunch and a walk ..........


Hmmmmm,


I think I missed all the leaves changing colours.


A pity because Canberra's trees do put on quite a show.


Just a few about.


Button arrived and we headed off of breakfast....


You will be wondering by now why Chloe is not featured in any of the photos - she is very busy doing reports - ah, the life of a teacher.


My breakfast - crispy polenta, mushrooms and garlic tomatoes.


It is the most delightful cafe.


Then we headed off to see some wildlife - but, unfortunately, lots of it was roadkill. Three wombats and four wallabies. We did manage to see some emus and wallabies (live this time) but from very far away.


We rugged up and headed off to watch the Brumbies v Bulls.


We made most of the masks handed out at the entrance.


Did I say it was cold????


Vaughn and I made this double flannel quilt/picnic rug for Chloe and Gareth before we left - Button highjacked it.

More photos to follow.
Wish you were here.
