On the road by 7AM to avoid the rush...we managed to get out of Melbourne in no time...
(Out Of Melbourne and only another 550 kms to go!)
Andrew spent most of the trip driving (I only drove for an hour and he wanted to drive more as he got bored...bless).While the lovely Brigid kept us entertained with humorous Crazy Cousin Anne stories and a CD compilation EMI would be envious of.
At the moment the countryside between the capital and Melbourne is fabulous - Canola fields are a plenty and mountain ranges are lush and green. Amazing what a little rain does.As Albury-Wodonga was the half way point - we decided on to stop for lunch...it's a very pretty town on the Border of VIC & NSW on the Murray River.
Walking down the main Street (above is the main street of Albury) - we spied a little cafe - Q Food - which turned out to not only be the 'it' place in town - but it was a gay run cafe...in fact this town (small city really) has a loud & proud GLBTI community - Staff & the food were terrific.We left Albury soon after and got into Canberra by mid afternoon - not before spying this cunning place on words bead shop...they must have spent hours coming up with that.
(if you have any shops in this manner please email me!)
Next...Part 3 - That's Capital.
