Day 15: Rest day

I had a relaxing morning. 

Ate a healthy hippie breakfast. The yellow stuff was tofu and it tasted like poo. The rest was yummy.

Donated some plasma. The needle always hurts but it's for a worthy cause.

Donate blood

I went up a very steep hill, including some walking the bike, to the free marsupial park. 

A volunteer said the roos were from car accidents and the birds were old pets.

Budgie

Wiki says the budgie is the third most popular pet in the world, after the dog and cat. 

On my ride across Oz in 2013, I saw a flock of hundreds of budgies flying about. It was pretty awesome. I hope I see them again. 

This Little Corella shocked me when he said "hello". And "what are ya doing?"

I then went to the botanic Gardens which looked in need of a lot of care. 

They did have some scar trees.

This scar tree is by the Kamilaroi people. 

I spent the remainder of the afternoon eating lots, preparing for some big hills tomorrow. 

Steve asked for a photo of my front stand. It's a Koga brand which is bolted to a welded bracket on the front rack. Let me know if you want any more pics?
