We had a beautiful ride this morning, left home at 7am travelled to a nearby shopping centre to park our car and then off we went riding our bikes. It was wonderful to be out in the open, so many birds singing, butterflies flying around settling onto the fresh mud on the orange clay roads. We even spotted a tiny Mongoose scurrying across the track into the thick grass. It felt so good to experience nature like this and of course my love was there with me, so we had a few hours of quality time spent together.
My back feels much better today, we rode 25.5km and it was fine, I was a little tired but I’m sure I’ll be able to manage the 30km ride next weekend, we’ve entered the Serengeti Classic MTB race it’s our first race together and I’m looking forward to it!
We stopped for a water break and while we were standing looking around at the scenery, we spotted an eagle circling near this Bluegum tree, can you see him to the left of the tree? I only had my phone camera to work with and I kept stopping to take photos, there were just so many photos I would have loved to take, the Cosmos flowers in bloom and the Red Bishops’ flying ahead of us on the path. A whole flock of them would settle a few metres away on the tracks, we would ride closer and then they would all fly up and once again settle a few metres further away…
My love ♥
As we crossed the main road and rode onto a thin path bordered with thick, long grass, we discovered these tombstones, there were so many of them, overgrown graves lost forever, most of the people were born in the 1880s.

I’ve been working on my Panda pattern, so far so good, I can’t wait to share him with you when he’s finished:) I will post updates about him here and on my Ravelry group, Mamma4earth.
Have a lovely day x
