used to live at the other end of brand street 68 thru 69 (off to the right where the road curves at the bottom of the hill here). I remember ending up in a tree at the bottom of this slope once when my bike wouldn’t make the turn – probably that dark one on the right of the curve at the bottom. Ah the joys of being 11 and invulnerable!! Also recall that the sky used to be thick with christmas beetles through this park at the right time of year back then!

Ahhh, Canberra, where the skies are always blue…

Except today, for some reason. I thought we were only going to have morning fog?
