This week after leaving Corrimal we headed to Kiama, an equally nice spot where we stayed for two days. Louise has a cousin there who we visited for dinner one night. The camp ground was on a headland one bay from the town centre and an excellent walk.
After Kiama we stayed in Batemans Bay overnight before heading inland to Canberra. The drive to Canberra is through beautiful National Park and up through the Great Dividing Range. It’s a gentle slope at first, building up to a 5km very steep ridge. The constant road works didn’t help at all and it was all a bit much for our old girl (the bus) and she over heated at the pass. We had to stop for a couple of hours to allow the engine to cool down but seemingly nothing damaged so were able to proceed to Canberra without any problems.
We stayed in Canberra for the weekend with Louise’s Brother Ian and wife Sally, Louise’s Mum, her Brother and his wife came from Bathurst as well so it was a big family get together as Ian and Sal’s kids all live in Canberra as well. The occasion was the Canberra Fireworks display over the lake in front of parliament house. It was a truly spectacular display.
It’s always fun visiting the Canberra Rellies as there are usually games of darts, pool, croquet, cards, not that anyone is competitive. We also did the rounds of flea markets, shopping centres and took in a car show on the grounds of Old Parliament house, so it was a fun weekend.
This week we will be heading towards Bathurst arriving on Friday.
So all the best till next time
