Two short rides

On Saturday afternoon Mrs Tarsnakes and I took a quick run down the Great Ocean Road from Geelong to Lorne (Vic). It was her first pillion ride in 19 years and she did great - just like old times!

Sunday morning I headed for the Otways, but some drizzle & black clouds over the ranges had me thinking about whether I really wanted a drenching or not. I saw a heap of motorcycles at Dean's Marsh, (including a Spyder that I had seen in Geelong on Saturday). I didn't stop at Dean's Marsh as I really wanted to head a bit further on. I resolved the weather issue over a delicious breakfast at the Otway Estate vineyard just past Colac. I ended up heading for home and had dry roads all the way. So, a weekend of two short, but enjoyable rides.

Every time that I ride past this "renovators delight" I think that I should stop and take a picture - so today I did. Now that the fire season is over, farmers have been burning off, so unfortunately there was quite a bit of smoke about.

Main building - much nicer inside than the exterior would suggest.

The weather wasn't the greatest, but there wasn't much traffic and the roads were dry so it was OK for riding.
