Blackbird Flat Camp


Jordo and Pete invited me up to Blackbird flat for a beer or five.

Pete actually trusted me enough to let me ride his new WR450 Yamaha.

Silly boy. I wont tell him how I nearly flipped it at 80kmh.

I was genuinely impressed as to its handling and power delivery.

It certainly made my DR650 look slow. But most bikes do..


Below Five Day Creek Bridge




Five Day Creek



Saddled up and ready for gravel rash



30 minutes later I returned. At speed.



The sun prepares to leave us



This is living Barry.



Pete decides to crank Panterah and make devil horns



It was a bit quieter on Sunday when the boys left.



I went for an explore down the river



I found this nicely packed pile of rubbish some scumbags had left behind

People like this are why places are getting locked up



The only name I could find in all the rubbish.

Anyone know a Robyn Lester?



So I bagged it all up, and took it home



Some views of the Macleay River above Comara Station


South West Rocks


Spring seems to have arrived early on the Mid North Coast.

A good opportunity to wander around South West Rocks in the sun.

Not a bad spot to chill

Hat Head - Connors Beach


Hat Head is one of my favourite walks.

It's been a while since I walked Connors Beach.

A nice easy one today.



A bit of panorama at The Gap



Pan once again on The Hat



Hat to Connors pan.

Banksia dreaming.



Walking in.



Checkout this little guy.



South Connors.



Don't step on the brown fellow.

Twilight Taronga - Peter Garret


I got shouted tickets to Taronga Zoo on a promotional thing.

Dinner included. 

I can rub elbows with the business elite, no problem.

Especially if there's an open bar.


Dont worry. Its plaster.



Goodfellows Tree Kangaroo



A nice bit of timberwork



Cityscape



The chimps were on the warpath



Barbary Sheep

Great water views

Remember these things?



Twilight was spectacular



The food was pretty good too



Peter Garret got up and did his thing.

Being an old Midnight Oil fan I was rapt.

Pete and his crew certainly rocked the house.





Thanks to Taronga for an epic meal and night out
