Boating on Lake Burley Griffin

What an awesome cheap import! Not me, the boat - just $15 was sufficient to supply this inflatable boat from KMart. The wet weather put Egg and I off our trip to the coast, but I was eager to try out me boat, so we rode down to Lake Burley Griffin wit it.

The inflation step was arduous, but I was soon launching in to the lake. It was certainly no speed machine, but it was very relaxing to bob around in the lake.

I was having a stub' out on the lake in this shot and could have easily handled a few more out there.

The swans and their rather large cygnets were slightly more graceful in the water than I.

I'm little more than a speck here as I paddled my way over to Elene's museum on the other side of the lake. At my cracking pace, it takes about 45 min to traverse the lake.

Nice work, Gilligan. Not a bad buy for 15 clams.
