Summer cycling….

On this morning’s cycle (Gladstone Road hill puff-puff, Dornoch Tce downhill Wheeeeeeee!, Orly Park – mind the buses, South Bank – mind the walkers, Annerley Road traffic weaving) I saw:
One young woman walking to work reading a device called a book;
Two runners with dogs on leash;
One LARGE man setting out to cycle for the first time in a loooooonnnng while (“I’m not sure about this helmet…..”);
The Scribe:

I feed these birds because I’m a nong

These amphora decorate a Turkish restaurant on my route:

Boats, Buddhas and Buckinghamia

Yay! the Buckinghamia celsissima are in flower. One of Brisbane’s favourite street trees is showing off. These blonde beauties are flinging their ivory curls about and filling the air with perfume. Nice.

Don’t you just love a bit of alliteration to start the day? The blogger’s friend. I pedalled past this Buddha and just had to sneak a photo – what a smile to come home to every evening! He’s laughing, the yard needs work, but who cares? Be happy!

Messing about in boats: rowers on the river on a (thankfully) much cooler morning. The heatwave is taking a holiday and it’s great cycling weather.
