At the cemetery on the last day of summer.

It has been a hot day for the last day of summer. We had lunch in Queanbeyan, just over the New South Wales border, and stopped at the cemetery on the way home. There was an aeroplane flying really low over the graves just before (Canberra Airport is nearby), but all my pictures were so bad!

Beneath that is a blurry from-the-car picture of some of the gazillion kangaroos around here. This is what plenty of our suburbs look like. Yes, Canberra has a serious kangaroo issue!

Cemetery Kangaroos

Saturday was the second anniversary of my Ukrainian grandmother’s death. We dropped by the cemetery, left flowers, and then I looked up and realised we were surrounded by kangaroos! Everywhere we looked, there were more.

I did take a video of them jumping through, but I haven’t uploaded them anywhere yet.

On the road…

Driving from Canberra to Queanbeyan on Friday afternoon. Those are “watch for kangaroos” signs, but you can’t really see them in this picture.

Watch for Kangaroos

Just another shot out the car window from Canberra to Queanbeyan. We have a kangaroo plague here, and because they have now installed solar panels in the paddocks the kangaroos used to live in, they are running out of farms to invade! Poor things.

This picture is nothing special, but I was pretty impressed I got a shot of the highway sign from the low back seat of the car!

On the Road…

Here is another shot of the road between Canberra and Queanbeyan, with huge sky, and this time with kangaroo signs. The paddocks on either side of this road are always full of hundreds and hundreds of kangaroos.

No livestock – just kangaroos!

Driving around the Bush Capital…

Excuse the blurry picture, taken out of the side of the car this hot afternoon!

We’re just a few minutes from the city centre here, so it gives you a good idea how Canberra got its nickname!
