69Trip End Oct 16, 2005
We meet Ness and she helps us get our bags into her car and over to her home. She gives us a spare key and offers to drop us off in the centre of town on her way back to work. We are exhausted (about 23 hours of travelling since we left Portland), but we don't want to lose an entire day just sitting around, so we agree and Ness drops us off
We aren't sure where to go, but we see signs for Floriad - it is still on in Canberra, so we follow the signs to the annual flower show. Very nice displays, and we take quite a few pictures here - aiming for some interesting floral shots. We walk along the edge of the lake. Neither of us feel like going to any of the museums, but we wander around Civic for quite awhile looking at shops and such. We eventually meet up with Ness for the evening, and we go back to her place and order Turkish takeaway for dinner, which is different. Lavinia and I are exhausted from the 23 hours of travelling, and walking around in the hot Canberra sun all day - we are falling asleep during dinner! We meet Carl (Ness' boyfriend), before falling asleep for the evening.
