Visiting the Queen...

Recently we had a few days in Canberra showing my parents around a city they haven't seen in over 30 years. We took them to the usual tourist spots accompanied by the most beautiful spring weather. When Queen Elizabeth II discovered that we would be visiting Canberra she thought it would be a brilliant idea for her to coincide her visit at the same time (tongue in cheek). We were exploring the National Museum when we were told that if we went down to the lake at 10.30 am, we would get to see the Queen floating by on her way to Floriade. We thought it would be a good opportunity to see her IRL, so off we went with our Latte's & there we sat sunning ourselves. An hour & half & a bad sunburn later...........we were still waiting for her to grace us with her presence. Finally along came the Royal Flotilla casually cruising as close as possible to the lake's edge - ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE LAKE! We did have a good view of the police vessels whizzing past though. Oh well she missed an incredible opportunity to meet us :)
