I've had a fantastic four days, first on the goat farm up near Lithgow for New Years, and then a roadtrip to Canberra with no real purpose the last two days.

On our roadtrip , Kerryn and I:

went to goulburn and did the obligatory big merino photos

ate in an old school diner

drove through collector

went to the art gallery

set up our tent by a river (with help from kindly camping neighbour types)

had dinner in town

drove to belconnen semi-accidentally, where Kerryn bought a $5 jumper (it was really cold!)

went up black mountain; froze to death

drove out to cotter dam, where we left the tent

lit a campfire, and cooked marshmallows


packed up tent

went in search of a farmers' market - it was cancelled for some silly car rally

ate a big breakky in town

went to a salvos store

went to parliament house

drove home singing death cab, the cure, maritime, the mamas and the papas at the top of our lungs

Some photos (beware - lots of tragic self-portraits!)
