After dark we took one of the water taxis across the creek. There were some 20 of us in the group and we all managed to fit on one taxi.

It was good to be home as I had missed my daily sightings of kangaroos, among other things.
In the late afternoon I did a circuit of Mt Taylor as an effective way of dealing with jet lag and was pleased to see kangaroos in a number of spots around the mountain.
The countryside between Sydney and Canberra and around the ACT is surprisingly green and is a dramatic contrast to the dryness and deserts of Jordan and Dubai.
