Family Reunion in Australia - Day 17

 Saturday, 5 November 2016

 After breakfast, Eileen and I connected with cousin Tracy who lived in Canberra. Tracy along with her son, Nate, picked us up in front of the hotel.

We drove up to the Telstra Tower on Black Mountain, the highest point, for a great view of the capital city. 

We even went to the uppermost outer balcony where we were almost blown away! Beautiful views! 

My brother called from home in the U.S. to wish me a H.B. via FaceTime. Glad to fill in family about the wonderful time I was experiencing down under. 

We came home for a lunch of sandwiches. 

We were out again to see more of the city parks and lakes.

 We drove about the Red Hill Nature Reserve up to the Red Hill Lookout. More great views of the area.

We went out to Tuggeranong Town Park next to the lovely Lake Tuggeranong. Here is some of the action and nature we came across.

Looks like someone was having a party/game with

these giant body bumper balls. How fun!

I loved the area with the trees in blossom. We came home for take away Chinese dinner. Tracy and I are Jane Austen fans. We watched Emma and then Sense and Sensibility back to back.
