This pretty ring necked parrot is munching on an almond I accidently dropped on the ground.

Luckily I saw this tiger snake and was able to stop in time. It slithered away after I took this pic.

I was happy to see this snake today as I was disappointed I didn't get to see the one from yesterday. 

I stopped at the Elleker general store for a cold drink and saw two tiny horses.

Sunshine is the brown one and Moonlight is the black one. Great names.

They were competing to lick the empty ice cream tub.

It was a big day of riding. It was mostly flat so I was able to maintain a decent speed.

I made it! A happy milestone.

This has been the best 1,000kms of riding so far on my trip around Australia. 

My bike and pannier set up wasn't ideal but I still made it.

I celebrated by having a delicious curry at the restaurant next to the caravan park. 

I will have a rest day tomorrow.
