Weird sheep…

We had lunch next to the fire at the excellent Poachers Pantry just outside Canberra yesterday afternoon. I’m no farmer, but these must be abnormal creatures!

The drive home…

I took this picture from the back of a car on Friday afternoon. So – you have tinted windows, zooming in past the front seats, a big mess!

Anyway, the view from Queanbeyan to Canberra is always great.

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.

Driving Home

Heading home after the Jugiong Writers’ Festival this evening. Sometimes the Australian countryside can be a little monotonous (and very DRY in the Canberra and southern New South Wales region!), but it is so gorgeous as dusk!

As I am sure you can guess, the first picture was taken after the second!

On the Road

Driving from Canberra to Queanbeyan yesterday evening. You can just see Black Mountain and the Tower in the distance at the left of the first picture. The mountain is in the middle of Canberra, but we were in New South Wales when I took these out the car window.
