Refinery in the Park
Today practically rest day. Finish at 8:30am. Cold in morning. Peloton down to three riders. Pass Yambuk hotel at 7am. Fire still burning, but noone there. Typical country bravado. Bodysurfing at Narrawong. Portland dominated by huge aluminium refinery. Surrounded by wind farms irrelevant to its power needs. Refinery can be viewed from a park from a number of interpretive trails. Situated on headland of dramatic coastline. A factory in a beautiful environment still looks like a factory. Must have “worlds best practice” PR person.
