One thing I have been doing since my last post, an activity I totally
I was delighted to discover on my virtual travels that at least part of that disused track at Dookie HAS been turned into a cycle path, or rail trail as they're called in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA, with plans to extend it all the way back to Shepparton. I also discovered a number of other rail trails, mostly in Victoria, but apparently NSW is keen to jump on the band wagon to net some of those tourist dollars. It seems that cycling along old railways has become very popular and the savvy are keen to cash in on this trend.
I've now moved on from the Southern hemisphere and am looking up Vias Verdes, Ecopistas, Voies Vertes and Bahntrassenradeln, which are some of the names rail trails are known by in Europe. I would dearly love to be able to go and ride some of them for real, but short of a lottery win, I don't suppose it'll ever happen.
I'll leave you with a photo showing what happened this morning when Small volunteered to stack the logs I'd chopped up for the fire. I did laugh.
