Canberra day 3

Hot air balloon(This post backdated to the date it happened, not the date I wrote it.)

Not much to day 3, but during breakfast a rather impressive hot air balloon sailed by not too far away. We caught a cab to the airport, the only notable thing about the trip back being that tea strainers bought on Friday and packed in the hand luggage attracted the attention of the security scanning people. As did Marita’s boots. And her handbag, which had a nail file in it. Then they decided she was worthy of a random explosives scan. Hmmm. Maybe I have a dangerous girlfriend.

We got back into Melbourne on time about 11:10, and Marita and Justine headed for Trentham to get their dog, while I caught the Skybus then and a train home.

All in all, a great weekend away. There’s lots more of Canberra to see, and I look forward to getting back there soon.

Huzzah. Great travelogue on my home town. I’d have to agree about the paucity of public transport provision in particular.

Kinda surreal to see an ACTION bus shelter as well.
