After 2 months off, and with the hand out of the cast, it was time to "test my arm"on a ride. I chose the beautiful Hawkesbury lowlands, about 25k in all. Passed market gardens, Polo fields, the RAAF airbase and back.
Fishing at dusk
I don't mind saying, I felt uncomfortable, the right hand is stiff and every ripple in the tar, every grain of sand could be felt through it. It took me about 15km just to feel moderatley settled.
Have said that, the bird life is astounding, White necked Heron, Yellow rumped thornbill, Little eagle are just a few of the highlights.
After the ride David asked me to take him fishing, it was peaceful although windy by the river and whilst there were plenty of nibbles we did not catch anything. I guess Mullet are smart....
