The day before departure.


A miserable cold morning in Canberra. One two hour shift to work.

David delivered Cam to his one day a week workplace, drove home and then caught the Katie taxi to collect our rental car. We had reserved a vehicle several weeks ago, but the continuing #ashcloud problems created car rental nightmares. Instead of the roomy sedan we usually hire we were downgraded to an extra small compact. A small car however is better than no car Surprised smile

Stopped for a take away coffee at Marulan and 5 minutes into the next leg of our trip we spotted a flock of 50+ Black Cockatoos. WOW. I was lamenting while we were getting our coffee that I hadn’t seen the Wedge Tail Eagle at Lake George but the Cockatoo sighting was welcomed. Usually only see them in 2’s & 3’s at home.

Arrived at Rydges World Sq and lucky again. Upgraded to the Bellerive Suite. A free coffee as we waited for our room as well.
