More About...

... the Tour will be coming soon to this blog. I'll basically explain why Marc Sergeant lost the Tour this year. Who? I'll explain soon. For today though, I've got a few pics for you.

This first one is for Ish, that cranky bloke in Kodiak. I'll bet he'll believe me if I say I was checking the brisket for tenderness...

Next is proof that cool looking bird pics don't always turn out to be "great" photos.

When you're pink and not very tough, ya gotta stick together!

Winter's can be very cold here. I mean just LOOK at this poor bird of paradise flower! Can't you see it's practically shivering?

Yeah - we are wondering what Le Tour is! Great pics, as always :)

Since you know it as "Le Tour" then you know what it is :) I'll just be doing a fairly in depth analysis of why the best rider didn't win, but the best team won.

Seriously, can one buy kangaroo steaks at the market?


Alaskan Dave Down Under said...

Ish: Seriously, yes. Roo steaks, roo roasts, and roo mince (ground roo). I post a pic soon. Very tasty. I just made roo burritos last night: yum!

Cool blog, I was just linked to it. I guess winters are a bit more mild in Australia than Alaska.
