Day 3
I walked to Hermione's bench opposite her island ('Hermione's Island' - privately named after our daughter whose ashes are buried there, under the right-hand tree), 4 - 5 km return. Very windy and cold. I thought I would be drenched on the way home but it has all blown over without a drop. Sigh. I have done three days in a row - first tree, first house and first landscape! :) Here, I used a fat 20B pencil to cover the page quickly, before I was blown away.

Which lake is this in? I am so sorry to hear that you lost a child.

It is Lake Burley Griffin in the heart of Canberra. We live in Yarralumla, in one of the old worker's cottages near the brickworks, not one of the 'palaces'.
