Talking Part 2

Kath woke up a little sore, but not as bad as she expected (or as bad as on this ride: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=665264 ).

We pulled our map, and plotted a rough route home.

Followed some power lines…





Took some real nice curves, and got here:



Then, to a Bushranger’s lookout:



Here’s his vantage where he would look for police officers…..



Continued towards home, getting real hot, and saw this river. I pulled over and asked Kath if she was keen for a dip, ‘yep’!



We looked silly, I only had undies and she only had shorts and her normal bra. Dip was lovely, and cooled us right down. Getting the boots on was a bit of fun with now-sandy feet, but it was well worth it. Oh yeah, we had no towel either!



Then, beer-time!



After a couple of delightful drops, it was time to plot the last 50k home L



Went through the Beechworth pine forest area. It was very warm, so not many photos.

This sort of thing:



These sort of views:



Then, we were home – had to feed/water/walk/look after our good mate:



Well, that’s it! That’s how we enjoyed two of our holiday days. Hope you enjoyed it too.

Rob + Kath.
