Default Re: NewYear '18...lunch at the Wombat

LOTS of water at Polly McQuinns...


















Setting up the shot...






Geoff, the Fire Warden @ Mt. Wombat.
This year with a Kelpie? pup for company...
Well-wishes and a Thanks to the AT-mob for the visit and the chockies.







Btw...the Strathbogie Store is still open, still has a tiny bottle shop at the back, too. They ditched the landline, it's only on mobile 0467 429 790.
And it's on the market,.
Looks like the "Under the Sun" arty-crafty Cafe will follow suit soon, too.


Sweet as ever...Mt. Wombat vistas. Mt. Buller with a cloud-cap in the distance.






Great to see Steve and Linda making the annual pilgrimage.







Nice to see this spot hasn't turned into a Maccas yet...the Lord praise bumpy, dusty dirt tracks, Hallelujah!

Picking the Old Strathbogie Rd. down to Merton was a little surprise, the semi-overgrown, rutted, lumpy, rooted track of years past is still a narrow, tight affair in places but in pretty good nick overall, and obviously looked after now that there are a few more hobby-farms along the way.
Saw a crappy, lumpy, old clay track with a hand-painted corro sign "Dry weather road only" branch off near the top where it's still Jukes Rd....will have a look at that next time.


Overlooking the Goulburn River Flats out the back of Alexandra





Beautiful, quiet little spot...





Mighty Old, near Taggerty Airfield










Neds Peak and the 2 Jawbones of the Cathedral Range







The back way around Buxton, fuel in Marysville, then some Granton gravel towards the Acheron Way.














The day is getting long...Acheron River Bridge







Thanks all for coming along....and 'till next New Years Day at The Wombat!

The sound of the mighty KLR was just too much...



Not today it wasn't



Too many signs - where should we go?



Everybody took their time and enjoyed the ride



Great way to start the New Year

Nice pic though. Great subject.

yeah, thought of last time and the FZ100.
This one was actually dust ON the lens (externally) after following you too closely along Sth Cathedral and Grantons.
Did a few shots to make sure this arvo...all good.
That's the problem with having the thing around the neck, semi-tucked under a mesh-jacket....sometimes
even the lens-cap comes off, stripped by the liner/or zip
