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.

Bushfire

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.

Stormy Sky…

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.

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

We need new cameras in this house! Two cameras dead and gone since June, and only my very old, very broken one from years ago to keep us going (with a trip to Venice and London coming up in a few months!).

Anyway, here is a shot from the back seat of the car (with annoyingly tinted windows), driving from Canberra to Queanbeyan on Sunday at sunset. You can (almost, sort of) see puddles at the bottom of the picture. Because it’s usually so dry here, the stupid paddocks all flooded a week ago when it rained. That whole space was half-lake!
