Our last 2 days in Canberra were full on.
We visited the Glass Factory and saw some fantastic glass blowing by the experts. They make it look so easy. Some of the pieces on sale were mind blowing, as are the prices.
We visited a renowned fine furniture outlet near Canberra and I have to say we were very disappointed. Some of the designs of larger pieces like tables, drawer cabinets were unusual and attractive, but the finish on many of the was second rate. Some of the timber combinations just did not suit also. The smaller items were excellent.
After that we were taken to see James and Sue's horses. They have four horses, one getting on in years, and another with only one eye. Sue trains horses and riders and demonstrated her talents. It was amazing to see her control the horse by gesture only. Jesse the doggie is a laugh a minute. Jesse was a mistreated dog which James saved. Jesse absolutely adores him. Jesse is a working dog and will "round up" anything that moves.
We finished off our Canberra visit with a very enjoyable lunch, with James and Sue at the Rocksalt Restaurant in Belconnen.
After that it was back to the park and prepare for departure.
It was really great to catch up with James and Sue after almost 20 years. How time flys.
