Things were going very Minnesotan this month, a cold and wet November, my bike froze up, see featured image (fake news??). ‘ Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ they say, so I’ll return he favour of Greg’s ‘Hastings Little Australia theme park’ and demonstrate how we’re going Minnesotan around here. I agree that Plataturkeypus-up is really a funny name for a town but I’ll add the local aboriginal ‘up’ which means ‘ place of’.
These Bald Eagles had headed south for winter and forgot to stop, escaping the elections I think. Now, no doubt Bald Eagles are a beautiful bird but I warned them that the the local Wedgetail Eagle guys are three times bigger, meaner and attack parachutists and bring down drones so they won’t like them on their turf.
The local beach had lots of white, fluffy stuff. Was it snow?, didn’t seen cold enough.
Our cornfields aren’t as extensive as in Illinois or Minnesota but it’s a start. Apparently you need good soil and summer rain, which we don’t have much of.
The Guilford sewerage pipe suspension bridge has been repainted red and has now been renamed the ‘ Hastings- Plataturkeypus-up Friendship Bridge over the Ol’ Man River (formerly Swan River).
I found this empty bike rack so I put my bike in it to be eligible for the Cycle365 Monthly Challenge…Duh. Oh, no. Alas its no longer empty, I’ve fallen for the old Catch 22.
Well there’s an empty bench overlooking the Indian Ocean with the bike. Challenge met, Mr Magoo, you’ve done it again.
An early morning empty river shot.
