Beer and Sculptures

More bike rides around the place: trees; sky; bike trails; water; urban graffiti - that sort of thing...

I was taking a picture of some artwork, and Chester decided I didn't need any more cats in my life.

Him Outdoors and I went to a beer and food matching event at The Durham, where there were five courses accompanied by various beers from Woolshed Brewery. The menu was somewhat the worse for wear by then end of the evening.

Mixed breads matched with Utopia hard lemonade
Roasted potato skins, beer-battered onion rings and mushroom arancini matched with Amazon Ale (Australian Pale Ale)
Judas the Dark Ale
Espresso mud cake matched with Cherax Destructor IPA
We went on a breakfast bike ride to Strathnairn, which constitutes a cafe and an arts association. Artists work in the studios in a variety of media (the current artist in residence is ceramics specialist, Sally Spencer), and many of their sculptures dot the gardens.

The daughter of friends had a seventeenth birthday; she was thrilled that she could now be the Dancing Queen - young and sweet; only seventeen. The song was played all night at increasingly short intervals, or that's how it felt. I took a rare selfie in honour of the auspicious occasion.
