Post 20 – Canberra day 2

After getting Anne’s wi-fi fixed we went over to Sally and Andy to pick them up for a days sight seeing in central Canberra. We left Tsana, the anxious (see photo) Collie dog , behind and headed for the National Library of Australia where we had coffee by the stained glass windows in the cafe. We also saw a special exhibition of manuscript documents from Roman times to the current century.

Sally took us to the Court House, Aboriginal exhibits in the National Gallery and we had lunch near the Sculpture Garden.

On the way back home we looked in at a Bag shop, Canberra baggage handlers having managed to break the wheels on my suitcase. We left with a case which turned out to be too small – will return it tomorrow and swap for a bigger one.

In the evening we all got together for a BBQ accompanied by a spectacular sun-set during the evening.

For Ken; I’m afraid Phil’s reply is unprintable, suffice to say that you should just look at the photos to see summer in Canberra!!

  1. Please say hello to everyone from us in the cold and damp UK. We’re glad you’re getting some sunshine and enjoying the sightseeing and good company. Jim’s glad to see that Phil has finally got a taste for proper beer 🙂
    I know Sally’s a clever girl but didn’t realise she could walk on water.
