Winters in Canberra can be pretty damn cold, but sometimes (just sometimes) we get these brilliantly sunny afternoons that remind you just what summer was (and will be). Last Sunday was one of those days and so we ventured to one of my favourite parts of the ACT – the grounds of the Australian National University. The colours are just so rich and the sunlight inspiring.
Of course, it wasn’t long before the sun had disappeared behind Black Mountain and the temperature fell to what would later become one of the coldest Canberra nights this year. I do wonder now in hindsight whether this glorious afternoon was, at least in part, a reason why BJ developed a little cold this past week. There is a downside to everything I guess.
