Canberra - Share my Snaps!

 

I know I said I'd be on a break but I do like the Share My Snaps! prompt. As the kids missed out on their final school camp, a friend and I took them to Canberra to see the things they would have seen - dubbed the Snore Memorial, Fartiment House and the Pooseum by one of them. I will admit I laughed more than I should have. 












We had a great time and I found it really interesting. 












The weather proved less chilly than expected given it had snowed on the weekend!          


                                                                                  
Floriade is now spread over the city, and due to limited numbers we missed out on the Last Post at the War Memorial and getting into Questacon at all.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

We ate well and walked a lot (10 kms on the first day and 9kms on the second) so intellectual and physical exercise to feed the soul.

The Endeavor exhibition is worth a look as it includes both view points.

The new blogger is unusable so I just want to apologise for the formatting. This is all I could manage. If anyone has any ideas on how to get it to work, please let me know. Otherwise I might have to change platforms...argh!

  1. Great photos, Lydia. I've never visited Canberra and have some family and friends I could visit there. I think with COVID we are looking to travel more domestically so I might be able to finally visit our nation's capital. Love the tulips! #lifethisweek

  2. I love Canberra. I did have a little giggle at the newly named Canberra institutions "Fartiment House" indeed!It's been way to long between visits for us - hope we can go back soon with the dog in tow!

  3. I love Canberra. You’ve made me think it’s time for another visit. A bonus that you were able to be there during Floriade.

  6. It's a fabulous place to visit! Sounds like you had fun! One of our daughters lives there and her sisters have named it #cityofdreams but they are being sarcastic when they say it :) #lifethisweek

  11. I agree with your comment about how awful the "new" blogger is compared to the old. Formatting is a disaster on my blog. Revert to original!

  13. Love Canberra, hate the new Blogger. My only visit to Canberra was too short, I hope to go back for a longer stay when/if the borders open again. Really enjoyed your photos, you managed to arrange them more successfully than I've ever done.

  16. It's always great when everybody had a good time walking and looking. As for Blogger, click the question mark in a circle and tell them what you don't like. It does get things changed.

    I'm happy to see your link at 'My Corner of the World' this week!!

    1. Alas I've been sending feed back on that for the last 6 weeks. Didn't make a difference and now they've taken away the legacy platform...
