We start the day on bike paths. Without fail, every year 6 am New Years Day is quiet.

Another quick 2nd breakfast in Busselton, then it’s goodbye to the ocean.

Hello to the bauxite pebbles on the shoulder, as we hurtled down the empty Vasse highway, crossing the Munda Biddi trail several times. (This is a Perth-Albany bike trail, but for fat tyre bikes)

Eskimo Joe evolved through the path Carpet-> Freud’s Pillow -> Eskimo Joe.
I knew these guy’s were big, but I didn’t realise how big until I read that three of the original members started playing from Hollywood High School. And I love this song. Before they were famous. Fast forward to 1:00 in. Take that Rolling Stones!
“… goodbye, and we’re Eskimo Joe. And you’re all good-looking.”

Ruby Wednesday – Live in Perth 2000.
“I met a girl who would travel the world for free,
She told me her phone number, told me to call her at 3,
She had a Gran who she liked to call Nan sometimes,
That was a lie but i sung it because it rhymes.
Good bye Ruby Tuesday, i really have to fly,
Be back, a week from Wednesday,
Hope you liked the ride.”
