Wednesday in Canberra

The sky in Canberra really did look like that a few minutes ago. It’s just that in the picture it looks sort of… fake…!

Happy Easter!

Being Ukrainian Catholic, we don’t have our proper Easter until the first of May this year, but here are some pysanky – hand-painted Ukrainian Easter eggs.

Sunny Canberra Afternoon

Just a shot of Parliament House from the drive home this afternoon. Canberra is sunny, and hit the high twenties after lunch. At this rate we won’t have any colder weather before we head to Europe next month (where they still have snow!).

Wednesday Sunset in Canberra

It looked like we had a bushfire in Canberra yesterday evening. No idea why the sky did that!

Monday Sunset in Canberra – a few minutes later

A couple of minutes after I took the first shot, Canberra’s sunset changed again.

Formula One in Melbourne

Just a shot of the Formula One podium this evening (taken from where we sat). It was quite the crazy race, and because of where we sit – on the start/finish line and facing pit lane – we got to see a lot of it (like the Ferrari on fire!), but I’ll go through my pictures when I get home.

Fernando Alonso’s crash was terrifying – how did he survive that?!

Melbourne – Yesterday!

The weather in Melbourne today is so absolutely dreadful that we didn’t even go to the Formula One track. The cold wind (and the rain!) is so strong houses are falling down, so we went to a great Spanish restaurant in St Kilda (St Kilda is where where we always stay – and have for decades), and are now watching the cars on TV!

However, this picture is from yesterday, which was a gorgeous day. It’s not a very good picture (I took it from our table, where we were having St Patrick’s Day drinks!), but it gives you an idea of what St Kilda Beach looks like in nice weather. 🙂

Tonee…

Tony Abbott projected on Old Parliament House during Enlighten Canberra.

I’m trying to imagine – say – Americans projecting George W. Bush on a building, depicting him like that. Imagine the outrage! Funny…

St Kilda

We flew to Melbourne this morning, for the Formula One Grand Prix. Qantas screwed up our flight – as usual!

Here is St Kilda Beach in the late afternoon.
