When I started this series I had in mind to make the titles ever-increasingly good. That got a trifle difficult since unless you are Dr Pangloss (or work for something owned by Mr Jerry Hall) things don't always get better. So I decided that a parabola model - first half increasing, second half declining - would be more normal.
When we got back to the house a fat person was noticed up in a tree. In subsequent conversation with Warwick the Painter he opined that this was probably a female as she was silent, rather than emitting the grunts typical of the males. She seemed quite happy in her position, occasionally waking to munch some leaves.
We decided to drive via Cann River. According to Google Maps, compared to the route using Imlay Road, it is about 9km longer and takes an extra 4 minutes (ie effectively the same) but it would make a change. We stopped in Cann River to stretch and for me to have a pie from the Bakery (about 6.5, as it seemed to have more liquid than necessary). I had a mistaken belief that it was on the coast but in fact it's about 25km inland so my hopes of Pacific Gull and Black-faced Cormorant were dashed.
Off up the highway. Frances thought it was a more comfortable drive than Imlay Rd whereas I felt the traditional route was better. Possibly I was influenced by having 4 folk in front of me who drove at unnecessarily erratic speeds relative to the limits and conditions. There were showers and low cloud as we ascended to Bombala (temperature 13oC but Nimmitabel, the highest and usually coldest locale was a relatively balmy 16oC.
Basically a drive. We got home and unpacked. The overall rating of the trip was as usual, excellent.
