On the road again! From Kilmore to Lancefield, take some detours and you'll see this!
A fruit tree often indicates that there used to be a house nearby.
I looked around for evidence of old dwellings here.
About 100m away I found a small, abandoned rubbish heap with a few bits poking out of the ground
Note the trampled earth and wool scraped off on the bottom wire of the fence ;-)
These are probably the culprits!
There's a bike in both of these pictures somewhere!
A nice little climb if I could have scraped the bike under the fence like one of the local sheep
I did walk up though! This is the wombat hole in the middle of the above picture. I don't know what wee beastie lived in the other straw home.
Some more sights...
I didn't think we had Yak's in Southern Victoria! What the hell have they been feeding the cows?!!
A bit of a standoff ensued
But eventually I brokered a treaty and we all moved on
I again ventured through some gates which google maps indicated were on gazetted roads (at least, that was my excuse if I got caugt!)
The "road" was like this for kilometres though, as the fences disappeared and I felt like I was riding in someones paddock
Nothing like some more shells to increase your sense of paranoia!
Heading home, it started getting a bit damp...
And consequently this is as far as I got! Beveridge Pub (is that a pun?!). Even for a teetotaller like myself, a pub with fire, food, and a few poor saps to show my photo's to is a hard thing to ride past!
