P365 – Day 257 – travel-log Day 4 (14/09/2011)

Today was the last day of our road trip, from Tumut to Canberra.

Goodbye Grandma & Grandad

We did the obligatory stop at the Dog on the Tuckerbox (where Juniordwarf, upon learning that we didn’t know the Dog’s name, decided that its name was Charlotte). We’d stopped there the first time we took Juniordwarf to the mainland for a holiday, when he was seven months old, and he’d seen the pictures of us with the Dog, so he was very keen to go back there this time.

The Dog needs a good wash!
Following that, it was a long drive on the Hume Highway, via a last minute fuel stop at Yass. 

We stopped in at Shaw Vineyard at Murrumbateman, which was in a lovely location and had some very nice wines. We had to buy some of course.
Then a quick stop at Hall for lunch, then full steam ahead to Canberra (or more exactly, Queanbeyan) and our motel, before heading over to Juniordwarf’s aunt’s place to meet up with Slabs’ family.

Juniordwarf had a brilliant time playing with his aunt’s dog, who is just the right size for him to run around with, without being knocked over.

Tomorrow it’s his birthday, and he’s very excited!
