Today was huge! We drove to Drysdale and then took off on bike for Queenscliff. It was 18 km of trails through farmland and along a railroad track. We saw several Rosellas, which are very colorful birds. Burttie also pointed out some plants and crops. The ride was a challenge, but lots of fun. The only not so fun part was being into the wind the whole time. Queenscliff was fun to knock around. We went by the Ferry Station and along the fishing boats. The water is pretty clear and there was some colorful stuff down there, but I couldn't name any of it. Thank God you don't have to knowledgeable to appreciate things. We stopped in town briefly to get fish-n-chips and then took it down to the water for lunch. Burttie saw fit to feed the seagulls and I was none to excited about their attentions. After lunch, we just walked around town: went into the shops, got some ice cream, and looked around this fort that's 146 years old. There were also several WWII memorials to ships lost on the water. Queenscliff would have had ships in and out throughout the war. The last stop was a short ride to Port Lonsdale to see the lighthouse and the view. After coffee we headed for home on the trails. The ride home was good as the wind was at our back. I felt a little silly becuase I had been worried about making it back, but when the time came I was moving pretty fast down the trail. All total, 44 km on the day. I think its a little over 28 miles. Last night was good. Helen and I went for overpriced drinks and appies at this trendy little bar. The bill was quite a surprise, but not the good kind. The company was good and that was the important part!
