Melissa and I had a wonderful few days off in Canberra. My friend Joc and her husband Rollo took such good care of us. We learnt a great deal about the history of Canberra and visited many wonderful places.
At the moment there is a wonderful aboriginal art exhibit 'The Canning Stock Road' at the National Museum of Australia. www.nma.gov.au/exhibitions Melissa and I could have spent the whole day there. It was so interesting and the paintings were fascinating.
The trees in Australia remind me of South Africa. I just love the shapes and shades of the bottle trees and all the gum trees that cover Australia.
We had a lovely drive from Canberra to Bathurst. The Big Merino was in Goulburn. I had to take a picture of it as I am so passionate about wool.
We were also very fortunate to watch a wallaby and three kangaroos down at the river feeding. They were fabulous to watch.
Love from down under.
