Dam busters

Had our work Christmas party today.  One of at least three heh.  So that was fun enough, although they lied and had the band inside (they'd promised the band would be outside, so the inside area would be quieter).  But of course with the rain (or threat thereof), they came in.  Which meant we had to go outside or into one of the side rooms so we could hear each other without yelling.  Grunt.

Anyways.  

Afterwards I talked Dave into being my dam chauffeur and we hit Scrivener, Cotter and Ginninderra.

Scrivener with two gates open (this morning there were three)

Then out to Cotter.  The lower bridge over the Cotter River was closed.  But you get a decent view from Brindabella Road.  (Coppins Crossing was also closed)
