I decided to take the bike out on a gratuitous run around yesterday. It’s been ages since I’ve just walked or driven about with the camera on my own for the sake of it. In fact, the last time might have been when I went to Brisbane with work. Crap, huh?

It’s been a shocker, weather wise, over the last three of four days. A massive winter storm system has swept in off the Indian Ocean unleashing torrential rain and howling gales (upto 130kmh winds) that have relentlessly battered the Perth coast, with Rockingham copping some of the worst of it.
