Oi !! ....hold that bus.....!!

Only joking...now, at the beginning I'm only joking, but later maybe not so much!!  Today's the day of the big walk/run (CitytoSurf)...and really it's no big deal, it's only twelve kilometers, but long stretches of it are uphill, still no big deal BUT here's the thing...I usually do this walk with my 'friend and sometimes mentor' Bill (Bills Diving) and to say there's a 'competitive edge' some would say is a huge understatement!! It's quite hilarious, we're both at an age where we should be walking at a decent pace.. but not like the devil himself was after us...each determined to get to the finish before the other, as a result, he'll deny it emphatically, we are both totally knackered as we stagger over the finish line!! This year Bill is having 'issues' like..... HE'S GETTING OLD hahahaha! and can't make the walk.. again only joking, the 'frenetic' pace will resume again next year, but because normally I wouldn't even think about slowing down to take photo's, quel horreur he might get too far ahead of me, there's not much to record the event.  This time however, the camera will be out and I will be clicking the many amusing sights that normally 'flash by at the speed of light'. Apart from all that I've wanted to post a picture of one of the Cat buses that are part of a free service run by Trans Perth (Cat buses), this link is pretty cool as it gives you where the buses are running in 'live time'....Still thinking of everyone who might be affected by Hurricane Irene and hope you are all safe.....!

  2. Great bus! Love your picture. It is like the "Cat" is roaming the city. Irene is about to hit DC and it has been raining for hours now. We will see. Thanks for your thoughts. Enjoy your "walk".

  22. What fun--the bus and the run!
    Congrats. Thanks for taking all those insider pictures during the marathon. A young artist friend of mine, Lucy, was running too. Do you perchance know her?
