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!
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.
While we are freezing in Italy, this is happening in the areas around home, Canberra, and Queanbeyan, where I have many family connections. I hope no more homes are lost, and no more people are injured.
South Australia has been having these crazy storms, and now the end of it has hit us here! It’s terrible, and Floriade and our NightFest had to be cancelled the last couple of days. What is going on?! This time last year I was at Floriade in a strappy summer dress, and SO HOT.
Anyway… This is driving out of Queanbeyan in New South Wales this afternoon.
Driving from Canberra to Queanbeyan on Friday afternoon. Those are “watch for kangaroos” signs, but you can’t really see them in this picture.
Driving home from rainy Sydney yesterday – we were there for an outdoor(!) wedding on the Harbour.
Driving from Queanbeyan to Canberra this afternoon. We are still having near-summer weather. The sky looked pretty amazing, but the dirty windscreen meant it was hard to get any decent pictures.
Tomorrow we fly to Sydney, and then we fly to Europe (for two months) the next day. I really can’t be bothered facing that two-day journey at the moment!
Then we’re doing it again at the beginning of 2017… We’re so isolated here!
