Sounds awesome as always Pete. I have a confession, I was through Bungendore last Tuesday. My sister works for the US embassy as a political officer. She has been many places with the State Dept. This was one of her first posts she though we would enjoy.
She surprised my daughter and I with daughters graduation gift. A trip to Australia. I wanted to look you up, however we only had a week due to commitment at home. It was a speed trip. We visited Sydney I enjoyed the harbour, however that is waaaaaay too much for me. Canberra was quite nice, The Australian war monument is second to none, last post was really special.
We went through your area going to Bateman's bay and Pebbly beach. I really liked it! Beautiful country , had a meat pie at the Braidwood bakery. Nice town, nice folks.
Hopefully I can return some day, however she leaves there next July, so free room from sister won't be the program.
The bicycle lanes in Canberra were very impressive. I think we could learn some important things from you Aussies.
