and we were going to a family dinner. But I managed to get home early enough to go off for a quick local loop. So please excuse some pretty ordinary old cell phone pics for a spur of the moment TR and all the very best for your Xmas eve and a great holiday period from my neck of the woods......

A litle cruise down the road - the culverts are fun with the right winds

and across the main road onto the grass.

If you don't like a stadium, then knock it down. Didn't take long, but the new one will take a bit longer to build I guess

Then around the little lake and back the way we came. There's more in here than you'd guess. Only saw one fish caught on this ride and that was about 6 km in. Flathead. Good eating size.

But here it is down to the Italiany bit and the riding gets more interesting. There's enough features here to make a MacAskill out of some little snot

The tallest building in the background is 82 floors - residential - and that's where I prefer to look, cause like I said, some odd things around here.

Away from the ideas of others we find apparently boring terrain yet to be turned into comfortable if not luxury digs, but for now some of these boring spots offer big air, not the least being the huge platform over the other side of the bridges. Tail wind = big floater..... This place owes me a collar bone and a rib and some skin and stuff

So down to the far end of this lake (where the flathead was caught), loop back and take one of a few ways back over to the west side of the lookout and past a little wetland

where lots of birds breed. There are some magpie geese (black and white ) and babies in this pic. They are about 1m high to give you an idea of how shite the photos really are

Then on around the back of the golf course in another little drainage

So we follow the little drainage toward home. If I was in the northern hemisphere, I would be high in the mountains trying hard to find the whiteroom, but here we are firmly seated in the greenroom. And it's pretty OK too

From here it's just a few little rollers back to home. So happy to get another Xmas cruise in. Who knows how many we have

Merry Xmas and may your ride be all you desire for ever after
