#1 place

After a no-driving day spent taking in the ambience and delicious food of Montreal, we headed south back over the border and into the whirlwind that is every visit to Boston. We've spent the past few days cramming in time with parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins; re-visiting old haunts; and even trying to catch up with a few friends amidst the extended-family onslaught. The weather has been totally uncooperative, featuring mostly grey skies, temperatures in the 50s, and regular chilling, drenching downpours, and making me wish daily that I'd packed more pairs of long pants and fewer t-shirts and shorts. I've decided to consider it preparation for heading into winter in Canberra, and looking forward to picking up the boxes of warm winter clothes that I hope are waiting for us when we arrive in a few days. (Canberra correspondents, feel free to weigh in on what to expect in the next few weeks!)

Happy Monday to all! Hope your weekends have been as entertaining (or as restful) as you could desire.

Hi RL, in Canberra at the moment it’s sounding pretty similar to Boston - in your terms most of this week is about 55 during the day and 26 over night - and raining and windy, so welcome to sunny Canberra :)

@beck Hi Rebecca, thanks for the update. Sounds as though we will be well prepared to arrive in Canberra in a few days' time - unfortunately!

@celia Celia, tons of fun but a bit exhausting! Now in Canberra for a bit of a rest. :)
