I rode 14 miles to Cottesloe and back to Trigg, despite the rain and sideways wind. It was beautiful and I could've gone further. In the first half hour of the ride, I spotted a "stubbie" lizard in the middle of the path–almost hit it–but just passed it. It was a blue-tongued lizard, the type that held my mom hostage in the backyard, blocking the doorway. They open their mouths, hiss and show their blue tongues, not poisonous, but if bitten–strong jaws will not let go. I didn't stop for a picture, but saw two more lizards just 5 minutes later down the path. I pissed one off and it hissed at me. The photo I caught wasn't nearly as good as the one I pulled off the web: (looks basically like what happened)
The rest of the ride was awesome, but a storm arrived and rained and blew sideways wind, isn't it supposed to be summer? I spent a day in the city, chillin' and exploring . I must love Dale–I see him everywhere...That afternoon, I went with my Mom to get Nathan his x-mas present–a new suit! He attends formal dinners/events at Uni, since he is involved with the dorms. Dressing nice must cancel out irresponsible binge drinking games. Despite my opinion, he looked sharp as hell! I believe there are more mannequins in use in Australian shops–they were making me nervous:
On Sunday we went to Fremantle: a harbour city with adorable shops, market, x-cellent nightlife and a wicked brewery, "Little Creatures." Delicious brewskies & munchies. As tourists we also saw a convict-built lunatic asylum converted to a Museum (every room was haunted!) and a Maritime Museum. Hooray for history.
