What's not to love about riding??
I was talking with a lady today about why I ride... There are many details I love about riding. Primarily I think, is the focus. It's a leveller for me. Ever read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance? kinda like that..
Day 2. Jimmy and I rode to Tarwin Lower before hitting Walkerville Sth. The Wind Turbines on the way were pretty spectacular. On foot, we hiked along the beach to have a look at the remains of the Limestone Kilns (operational end 1800's into early 1900's). From there we trekked through the bushland to find one of the most beautiful Heritage Cemeteries we've ever seen. Worth a visit.
From Walkerville we headed north to Fish Creek. Gorgeous little township. Great cafe/coffee (9 acres) and some interesting galleries. Here we had the great fortune of meeting one of Australia's most renowned Botanical artist - Celia Rosser. She told us a few of her stories and signed a biographic book of herself, for us. Inspirational woman. We then headed to Foster, checked into the Comfort Inn. walked into the town centre for dinner at the local pub... Don't recommend the Veg Lasagne ( we think it was made by a meat lover)..haha. As always, the locals are very friendly and love having a chat to us "touro's" as we were affectionately referred to.
Day 3. The weather has been fantastic! 16 degrees already as we ride out of Foster and make our way to the Prom. We decided to ride back through Fish creek for a great coffee and weren't disappointed. The ride through this area is fun. windy roads. Beautiful scenery.. really loving this. The prom was again lots of fun on the bikes. One of the locals told us about Mt Oberon. so we headed for that. The 3.4km walk was unrelenting up hill walk. Takes about an hour. The view was worth every effort. The sun was shining with a gentle cool breeze to cool us. it's a popular walk. I was surprised at the number of people there. Back on the bikes, to Tidal river. Here we decided to ride to Port Welshpool via Agnes falls at Toora. Such a beautiful part of the world. The ride was a lot of fun today.
