Saturday in Canberra

The view from the back of the car when we were driving past Parliament House in Canberra this afternoon. We had lunch at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant (by the way, the staff = terrible! They messed up our order literally half a dozen times – e.g. wrong drinks, then three entrées we didn’t order – and then CHARGED US for it!). It was a lovely, sunny day.

One day I’ll sit in the front of the car and take a decent picture!

Before the Rain

Heading home from lunch in the city today, with the clouds coming over Parliament House. It was a nice, much warmer, much sunnier day than predicted until the rain came.

This was taken from the back seat of the car, so it’s not very good!

Driving home in Canberra.

Over the lake and past Parliament House to get home after a birthday lunch this afternoon. The whole street has flags for Science Week.

I took the picture from the back seat of the car, so it’s not great.

Driving in Canberra

“Fantastic” shot from the back of the car this afternoon! Parliament House in Canberra emerging from the trees while we were headed to a bar.

Beautiful day, however. Spring is well and truly here.

Top of Australian Parliament…

…In Canberra. Just a random shot of the (double-decker bus-sized) flag – which I took from the back of the car!

Australian Parliament in Canberra

They were back-burning (controlled burns to prevent bushfires) in Canberra today, so the sky was full of smoke. However, for some reason, the sky still looks pretty blue in this picture!

You can see it a little better in the picture in my next post.

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!).
