SB has withdrawal  symptoms. he hasn't  been able to drive the wagon for a couple of weeks.
he is meant to be tidying the garden before we leave. but i just found him in the shed.

DAY 4
( or Day 1 proper for the Nats)
Friday ýs registration day where everybody gets to catch up with their  mates that they  haven't  seen  for 2 years. ( i just need a better memory so i can  put  the  right  names  to the  right  faces )

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180331/0c2ee9a1304c01cd9eab24496e9b550f.jpg)

and we get to pick up our goodie bags full of stuff ( and important  information  apparently 😊)

for the early birds there is the optional  lunch & cruise around town. GREAT cruise seeing lots of tourist spots and views over Canberra.
Cruised up ( & down) a big hill

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180331/0d7a1c20583f7c72dd60e284dc4da6eb.jpg)

they must have known there was a lot of Grey motored Holdens coming

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180331/8bcd9e3f81ff12c699940d26c413bb18.jpg)

lovely lunch by the lake, looking across to parliament  house. And the usual photo opportunity for a Nats carpark shot

Back to Nats HQ for some more chin wagging  ( or a nanna nap) before heading out for posh dinner
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180331/51bba7365b106245dec6cbef6e02a7ff.jpg)

DAY 8
Going home diary starts today.
Hope you all enjoyed the Nats weekend as much as we did.
Got to sleep in this morning 😊 before a lazy breakfast. A few last goodbyes before we hit the road.
Heading east towards the beach 😃

love being out on the road. one minute it's  wide open roads and paddocks, then the winding roads through thick bush
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/9a86bd6d249fa646db2d18c106b799bd.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/a18ab2d0cb4c5fef8f5ba4f3dab782ab.jpg)

then sometimes its ...
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/db944c7939e359bd5ba72f3300d0bf5b.jpg)

lovely drive to Batemans bay for lunch
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/7165ed85c3b6df4d9dc2c3b2991a8c28.jpg)

they have a bridge that must be important because  it is  on the souvenir  hat badge i just bought.
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/dcf645ffcafdff8d46595b81b4a93fd6.jpg)
it moves 😊
heres a still photo of the bridge moving
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/39cc91f0aa900bf89052e9be8a91b8d3.jpg)

we then cruised Northwards  up the coast.

This seemed  an appropriate  place for us to stop for the night

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180403/7c7faef63605a6d37730d670576d8984.jpg)

Sunday
Cruise. Sports. Tropy night.

    (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180404/203f3eb58f159b79cc689a5c13601d3d.jpg)
woke to a very misty morning
(but it cleared to another beautiful  day)

Followed the bunny
( a great idea having a number of cars throughout  the cruise with bunny ears for us to follow )
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180404/82d0a05bfc25a6ed9945d44e0ea4e594.jpg)
and helpers on corners with signs. You had to try hard to get lost.

Saw lots of Canberra sites.
Went to the Ainslie lookout where you get this magnificent  view to Parliament  house (es)

you can see the morning mist clearing

Up bright and early to watch a sunrise over the ocean. Another beautiful morning, the thermometer at the surfclub shows 20░

(stop laughing Lorene 😉)

& went walking on the moon...

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180405/2275c5dd70a01ec4f480ec2d1b8562cf.jpg)
it's  a bloody long line on my map !

then we hit the road heading  north to Woollygong

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180405/0f0061df7eeafad8adb918267105213c.jpg)

We stopped here for a coffee break

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180405/8cf5e6b7e88ffc17b1cdc0999c076c93.jpg)
not sure exactly (?). we got lost and ended up in a National Park. Somehow found a town & a coffee shop ☺

then back on the road 😊😊😊😊😊

love driving through places we've  never been before. with the long straight open spaces & tight winding roads, the open paddocks changing to thick bush

Stopped somewhere else
buggered if i know where
these MIGHT be photos from there... or somewhere else

SELFIES 😀  (this is one of those "must do" photos)

got to Woollygong with no problems...
except...
could smell petrol all day 😦
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180405/14b6dca52cf9cc3dd9635843407448e8.jpg)
overfilled at last stop so after unloading EVERYTHING i could check the rearend for any signs of leaks

it's  all good  😃

I think I might be picking up the wagon on the way over to Wangaratta at this rate   ::)

We dropped it at CEVA in Sydney on the 5th April
ETA in Perth  20th April

(Anthony dropped his sedan off on the 3rd and picked it up on Friday, just in time for the Curtin Car Show)

The wagon hasn't even left the Eastern states yet  :o
looks like it spent 11 relaxing days at the Sydney depot
