Canberra - Day 1

Alec and I drove down to Canberra to check out the Degas exhibition for the Australia Day long weekend.

It's a loooong drive from Chatswood, so we drove to Warwick Farm Friday after work, and then set out this morning so we didn't have to rush.

We arrived in the Berra around lunch time and went straight to the Australian War Memorial.

I found the war memorial very interesting - there was so much to see however, we ran out of time. A highlight was watching the lone Scot piper playing a lament at the tomb of the unknown soldier - very moving.

After a solemn afternoon we had dinner and raced to Telstra tower to catch the sunset. We were a little late and only caught the last light of the day, but it was still a great view.
