Last Day in Canberra

Tuesday, 2 October 2012


View 2012 Short Outing on greynomadm's travel map.

Crisp morning with a hint of fog under a cloudless sky. No wind to speak of and the promise of a gorgeous day.

First order of business is to visit the supermarket and stock up with essential supplies for next week. Staples such as bread, fruit and yogurt and two bottles of Scotch, one each for the two neighbours who made the emergency repairs to the house.

Next a visit to the hardware store where Jenny has finally found two pieces of art to decorate the front of the house. They are two rectangular glazed tiles that should withstand the ravages of the salty environment. There is also the advantage that she can take them with her when we move to our next dwelling.

We decided to have lunch 'out' and of the many food outlets in Dickson we chose the Tradies where we enjoyed the carvery special of roast beef or lamb and vegetables for just $12 each. After lunch, I had a coffee and Jenny tickled the pokies coming out slightly ahead.

Back to EPIC with a top-up of fuel on the way in. We'll slowly pack up all our bits and be ready for an early departure in the morning.

Packed up as much as we can, all set to go, now all we hope for is a clear morning.
