EARLY MORNING RIDE

 While the family was here over Christmas, they liked to head down to Kingston in the early morning before breakfast.

 A beautiful spot and a beautiful time of day....
 The Flagstaff Hill walk is mainly steps, but Tony decided to do the climb on his bike adjacent to the actual track!
Tony had actually brought his mountain bike over on the plane from New Zealand.

 Meanwhile Emily and Miriam had come up the track the normal way
 To be joined minutes later by Tony.
 The view from the top of the seafront and the old Penal settlement makes the climb really worthwhile...
 Phillip Island was shrouded in morning mist.
 Then Tony decoded to explore the Heritage Walk which takes you down the other side of Flagstaff Hill.
 The ground is rough, and those walking really need the rope for balance.
 Down through the Pine Forest...


 And out onto the Common below.
 Taking some extra time for a ride across Kingston Common.

 A curious cow looks on...


 And then setting off for home by bike and car....hey, it looks like they borrowed my car that morning!!!
 That is definitely my little Mitsubishi RVR in front, and definitely NOT me in it. I was still lazily lying in bed at that time...
But I know the girls and Tony enjoyed the best experience of a beautiful summer morning on Norfolk Island.
