Something different

Waterfall at Lamington National park

I've been trying to think of something deeply philosophical to write this week, and failing dismally. The simple fact is that the minor injury from Saturday's crash doesn't seem to have been helped by 120km on Sunday, or 93km yesterday (including a jaunt into Tallebudgera Valley last night), so I am now looking at a relative weekend of inactivity. It's just as well then, that I have something completely different lined up this weekend.

For some time I've harboured a curiousity about North Stradbroke Island. This weekend, I'm headed there, for the start of three weekends away in a month. I have absolutely no idea what I'll find over there, and I'm trying to keep my natural curiousity at bay in the hope that there might be a surprise or two. Martin has advised me of a rather interesting cemetary to visit, and they'll probably be a bushwalk somewhere in the vicinity of the Blue Lake. Beyond that, however, I have no idea.

I had hoped to give The Black Magic one final outing before it's retirement from my stable of bikes, but it appears that the brake problem on that machine is terminal, so I can forget about it. I'm not sure I'll get to ride a huge number of kilometres, but that really won't be the end of the world for just one weekend. With Easter following, there should be plenty of opportunity to make up lost time.

This is a truly remarkable site. I love the clean peacful look of it, plus the photos and the intent are an inspiration in todays world. How amazing that you cycle everywhere...that is absolutely commendable. I so admire you for that. Your photos blew my mind. I could smell the forest and hear it's sounds in my mind. I lived in Australia for several years from late 70s to late 80's in both Far North QLD Daintree Rainforest and caostal northern NSW. I have not yet been back but hope to at some point. What a find this site. Will check it out more as time permits -- lots to explore.
Thank you. Robin www.nakedineden.com
