Burns' Beach

I cycled due west towards Burns’ Beach yesterday after lunch.

FOSTFOLG performed well, even getting up to top cog in the wiggly chaos which it pleases modern developers to call “streets”. Even though developers have *“improved” most of the area with bulldozers and scrapers some years ago, they haven’t got around to replacing more than about 1/3 of the “improved” area with random brick boxes yet.

The impact of all of this for a cyclist is that there is no pleasant bushland to cycle through roughly, and no hard, clear streets to cycle through smoothly – just soft, blowing, mostly yellow sand.

My next micro-expedition will be a tad further north, along Burns’ Beach road. I’ll take my camera and see if I can grab a shot of the weird bundles of green rods that seem to serve as flowers hereabouts.
