black cockatoo

the black cockatoo is an endangered bird .. I live in the Perth foot hills and a flock of black cockatoo live in and around this area . they have distinctive red bands on their tail feathers.. As I was going for my walk tonight the flock were in the trees by the road and took flight as I passed , they were so close I could have touched them.. an awesome sight……..

a ride through the wheat belt

066

I took my bike for a ride to Esperance; this took me through the wheat belt.. A seven hour ride; it was amazing to be on roads that were straight for 30+ kms.. Esperance is a coastal town with a port to transport wheat.. I spent two days there, Christmas and boxing day, being a tourist.. the bike went well and was a pleasure to ride

pumpkin and bacon quiche, Robin Hobb, wild flowers and the wheat belt

it has been some time and a lot has happened, new job, new home and a new outlook on life..i have move closer to the city centre; and with this there are more things to see and do . i am spending more time on my motorbike riding into town  finding amazing cafe’s for lunch and a read, a lot easier on a motorbike, as well as seeing more of the country side around perth . one thing i have discovered there is plenty of country side to see . yesterday we rode into the wheat belt (7 hours ride)  for a look .

i now have a reserve at just up the road, this is a good place to go running as it is in the hills overlooking perth, awesome views of the city and at this time of the year the wild flowers are out….
