We headed out to the Australian War Memorial with a picnic. It was so special to just spend some time being rather than doing… I think it’s a major aim of mine to spend a lot more of this year doing just that.
Our next stop was a visit to Sean and Lauren’s in Macquarie. We had a lovely garden tour prior to a brief but heavy storm which made Sean and Laurens house leak and had us wondering about our van. (Turned out a good Samaritan from Bundaberg put down our awning for us and folded up are furniture to stop it blowing away. The wind was fierce enough to blow some of Shannon and Rosalee’s awning away). Dinner was delicious and mostly from the garden. We left with a bag of tomatoes and zuchinis and have been steadily working our way thru them!! The kids all had a whale of a time especially enjoying some screen time (golf and skiing on the Xbox etc). It was so lovely to see more of the Chans and get more of sense of home and away life in Canberra. It really is such a lovely city. As we were walking out Lauren handed us a free pass to Questacon that she had been given when she bought membership for a couple of years… and our path for the next day was set!!
