A bit of a road trip

Just realised I hadn't blogged any photos from our trip down south back in September. We took our usual leisurely time on the road, staying at Grassy Head and Ettalong on the way down, then detouring through Gundagai and along the Snowy Mountains Highway to see if we could find any snow (found a little on the shady side of a hill at Selwyn. We then spent a few days with friends in Canberra, attended a ceremony and went to Floriade. On our return we took a detour through Wiseman's Ferry, which was made even more intriguing by Google maps interesting route over a mountain track that left us not knowing how we'd got there! Then some more leisurely Pacific Highway motoring with a lovely stay at Elizabeth Beach in the Great Lakes district. Favourite photos below:

A road-trip to Canberra

This month we headed down to Canberra to attend a workshop. Seizing the opportunity of a road trip we put the car into camping mode and headed off for ten days, leaving the dogs, llamas, fish and everything else in the capable hands of our friend and house-sitter, Barb. We went down the coastal way and back via the Blue Mountains and the New England Highway. As usual there wasn’t enough time to explore and photograph as thoroughly as we’d like but its given us some great ideas and inspiration for future trips! Below are some of our favourite photos from the trip. Hope you enjoy them!
