22 January - South Gippsland and Moss Vale Park
Another glorious day and no sign of the forecast rain. A Beemer kind of day and lunch in Foster at Brommleys on Main seemed a good destination. If you're familiar with my part of the world you'll know that any trip south from my house in Traralgon takes you over one of a number winding roads over the Strzelecki ranges which always presents a great motorbike outing. This time the trip was via Mirboo Nth and Meenyian to Foster. After a relaxing lunch at an outside table the detour home was via Fish Creek, Meenyian, Koonwarra and Leongatha. On the road between Leongatha and Mirboo North I decided to detour to Moss Vale Park which I hadn't visited in more than 20 years. This park which features playgrounds and picnic areas features a number of very large oak and other trees - a really beautiful spot. There is also a small soundstage, and the park features an annual music festival. I'm glad I checked it out.
The total trip was 230 km of pure enjoyment.
A number of readers have emailed me to advise that they were no longer able to leave comments without a Google+ account. After a lot of confusing research I discovered that even though my blog is not connected with a Google+ profile, the comment section was. I have no idea how this happened but after some more searching I worked out how to return it to the previous set up where anyone can comment. I had noticed that no comments were coming through but I just assumed everyone was on holidays or something - so keep your comments coming, I enjoy reading them.
Now for something completely different. I recently found an interesting BBC documentary on YouTube called "The Glory Days of British Motorcycles"
See below for this interesting video.
