Canberra Visit

Nette and her Hubby Steve went for a short overnight stay in Canberra, Australia's Capital Territory. We stopped at a few spots along the way. There was a great school craft market at Berrima. Lots of old goodies were found, including a nice old frame and some small glass bottles.

Next we stopped at Goulburn where I took some great snaps of some of the old homes in the area.
Being Autumn the trees were just stunning. We missed some of the leaves having turned here. However the stark twiggy look was very haunting.

We got into Canberra in the early afternoon. So we went out to look at the War Memorial. The trees in the park were just stunning..the lovely reds and yellows of the leaves were breathtaking.
I must say it was very moving to walk around the War Memorial. We saw the names of the Men that had served in all the Squadrons that Steve has also served. This was very sobering. I must say we shed a tear. We stayed until 5pm when, on closing, they have a bugler play the Last Post.
Lastly we went up the Telstra Lookout, Canberra is stunning at night, if not cold..brrrr...Next we are off to Blundell Cottage. Lots more photos !!!
