I’d heard mention of this mysterious place ‘Palmerville’ before, but it seemed like it was too far away, too obscure, to be worth the visit. When I learned it was not only just on Owen Dixon Drive but allowed dogs off leash, I put in the effort to investigate it further. And wow, was I rewarded. Palmerville Heritage Park is now a staple in our lives.
Canberra has a thriving blogger community, but it’s not often we see each other face to face. Thanks to the organisation skills of one lovely lady, some of us self-proclaimed foodies descend on Mint Garden Bar at the Gorman House Markets to have a Christmas catch up (and for some of us, first meeting!).
I’ve seen no advertising, but on our way to the Behind the Lines exhibition we notice a rather large amount of cars on the Patrick White lawns near the National Library. We’re intrigued enough to go see what all the fuss is about.
Another year is almost over, and that also sounds the end of another political year. In a year where we had three Prime Ministers, the Behind the Lines exhibition at the Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament House) had plenty of political cartoons to choose from in their annual exhibition.
There’s a lot of activity in my beloved Belco recently. On one of Belconnen Town Centre’s corners has been the arrival of a whole heap of yellow to announce the opening of Chatterbox Espresso Bar (sister of Mingle Espresso Bar in Civic).
Have you ever been on a ride where you just want to get off, but can’t? It’s spinning around and you just want it to be over, but you have to just hold tight and wait? This is exactly how I’m feeling, bush bashing down the western side of Mt Clear early on a Saturday afternoon. It’s littered with fallen timber, spikey bushes poke through my clothes, and it’s all on a steep slope. Unlike a ride I can’t get off, the only way I can get off this mountain is to keep going.
