Just took a run up the old Putty this morning. Bugger all traffic ( I think I passed three utes ), greasy surface, nothing unusual about that. Something I couldn't help but notice - lots of animals ! Cattle by the road ( even in the road ), lots of roos, some ducks with ducklings in tow. All of these cute little guys were on the road verges - often within 2-3 metres of me. Oh yeah, and the usual, big black birds that take off one direction then turn 180 degrees straight into you. At one stage, I came around a 70 degree, blind, uphill left-hander to find a bloody big black bull just a couple of metres past the apex. Cool, I love bovines, but I don't want to hit one at 90 kph. Lots of fun. I love animals.
