AN OTWAYS LONG WEEKEND - PART 3: E-BIKING, PLATYPUS SPOTTING, AND CASISBROOK FALLS
“Now, let’s just give you a go on this little bike,” Nathan says. “If I’m satisfied and your parents are satisfied that you can do it, we can head off. Otherwise, I’ll hook up the trailer and you can just kick back while we do all the work.”
The UPWELLING FESTIVAL PORTLAND
The community of Portland made a “call to the sea” to officially open the Bonney Upwelling season. I hadn’t the slightest idea what an “upwelling” was but the trumpets and chanting indicated it was a pretty big deal. Market stalls, food trucks, jumping castles and a music stage filled the foreshore. There was atmosphere, there was sunshine and I was intrigued.
