The Veronica chronicles: Canberra to Lakes Entrance

Canberra delivered a gloriously mild winter morning with not a sign of fog or frost.  The National Museum of Australia provided today’s morning coffee spot by Lake Burley Griffin.

Next stop, Cooma and on to Bombala where we stopped off at the Visitor Centre for directions to the Platypus Reserve. We were advised that, given recent heavy rains, the platypuses had been more active in the middle of the day than normal. We drove up Maybe Street, hopeful of a more definitive outcome.

Between the two of us, we managed to capture some shots of the Bombala River, but saw no sign of the elusive creatures. TC did see a kangaroo though.

Suppressing our disappointment at missing out on the Ornithorhynchus anatinus, we motored on into Victoria travelling in the late afternoon through dairy and timber country on the way to Lakes Entrance.

Late afternoon sun on the road to Lakes Entrance TCTC cooked up a storm for dinner, which certainly hit the mark on this cold evening. Tomorrow we head for Phillip Island for some penguin, fur seal and koala action. Stay posted.
