Finaly did it. Went for a morning walk around the neighbourhood. Took my two 'pedometers' with me to count every step, and impede my progress as it became less of an opportunity for exercise and more of an exploration. But that's OK. It was a morning for company.
We took turns deciding 'which way to go' at corners and intersections. That was fun, adding an element of unpredictability to the ramble.
We went down the hill around the corner.
Stopped at every playground we found. Tired and run-down specimens though they were to my adult eyes, and only marginally more acceptable to the children who didn't wish to linger too long.
Notwithstanding these gripes, it is a splendid Autumn in these parts and the city views from high vantage points are always dreamy. A quintessential Australian landscape over the Monaro plains.
Like an ageing movie star, Canberra is best viewed through a filtered lens and at a distance.
