I did two cycle rides today but didn't see anything to draw. However, while walking with Mum this afternoon, I found both an opportunity and subject matter. Mum lay down for a rest just as a flock of yellow-tailed, black cockatoos started raucously 'playing' overhead. I've never seen them feeding on the ground as the white cockatoos are wont to do, so this is as close as I can expect to get. 22 km cycle
In mid April is my annual holiday to the textile forum/workshop and I am thinking of cycling there. It would be three fairly easy days (55, 75 and 85kms) or even 2 days, along sealed, undulating country roads with time for sketching along the way. I need to do a few longer rides between now and then, buy some padded cycling shorts and a few spare parts and learn how to adjust my gear set. I will decide at the last minute when I see what weather is expected. It would be a challenging near finale to this year-long challenge.
