We didn't fancy walking. Not because it was raining, but because - well - we just didn't fancy it. But we went after all. We had no plans as to where we were going to walk. The Machinist just pulled up at Lake Burley Griffin. We got out. We walked.
This is what we saw: Scenes from around (part of) Lake Burley Griffin:
|Captain Cook Memorial
|The National Library
|The Machinist walks on
|Swans on the lake
|It LOOKS cold, don't you think?
|Old Parliament house in front of the New Parliament House
|More black swans
|The National Carillon
|Rusty Metal retaining wall
|More rusty metal wall
|I loved the way these were blowing in the wind. I'm amazed it's not blurry.
|The Science and Technology Centre: Questacon
|The other side of the Lake - Lots of Oak trees!
|Approaching Parliament House
|After a brisk walk - hot coffee at Hudsons of Dickson (my brother's old cafe)
|They still use the names my brother allocated to sandwiches, bagels and drinks. This makes
me smile, as the new owners are Asian and the names are so very British!
