Breakfast in Toodyay..

 

We went for a drive into the country on Sunday, three guesses as to where we had breakfast. If you follow the blog I bet you guessed Toodyay :) It's such a pretty and easy drive only 85km north-east of Perth. The two photos below taken from the car show how lovely and green the countryside is still, with summer and hot weather around the corner that will change soon enough..

We arrived in town at the same time as many hungry grey nomad bikers.. the road from Perth with it's many sweeping curves along the way makes Toodyay an attractive destination for biking groups..

Was I distracted by the bee on the bloom.. maybe 😉

That's better! As I took these shots of the town from the lookout point one of the freight trains on its way up to the Pilbara region was passing through town..

You will have to embiggen the shot below and look to the left, you can see glimpses of just how long these freight trains can be.. and that wasn't even the half of it!

One of the reasons we made the trip was to catch the wildflowers, I think we were a bit late but there were a few lovelies along the roadside.. a trip to the country is never a waste of time, always something to see. Hope you enjoyed coming along with me, happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  7. It certainly is a lovely area! We have train tracks across from us and sometimes the freight trains can take 10 minutes to go by. It is easier on the environment that trucks hauling all of that stuff. Stay safe, Grace!

  10. What a great Sunday drive to such an interesting and historic place. I wouldn't like having noisy motor bikes around though.

  11. Gorgeous wild flowers, especially those pink ones. So what was on the breakfast menu? I hope the breakfast was worth the long drive.

  12. Dearest Grace.
    Lovely outing and the landscape looks lovely.
    Oh, we're here in the USA so familiar with these endless freight trains!
    As a matter of fact, the train we rode yesterday got split up during the time that we were disembarking for an hour at a famous nature park along a river. That way, the traffic would not get locked for all that time. They reconnected both parts again before we left...
    Hugs,

  13. Cute bee, Grace 😂.
    Oh, yes, the freight trains... on the way to Port Headland it went "bim-bim-bim"... and we had to let one through.
    Ingo took the camera and filmed. One direction, the other, no end in sight.
    At one point he got so bored you suddenly only see the road, he put it up again and then... turned it off. It took... minutes! Amazing!
    Awwww, wildflowers 🌺🌷🌸

  16. Hello Grace,
    Very nice pictures of this Toodyay trip. You came along nice green places with fantastic views. Nice pictures of the bakery with the parked bikes.
    And so nice to see that freight train. That's my job to drive with these kind of trains. For me it is too far away, but drive in these areas must be great.
    Nice post Grace!!

    Best regards,
    Marco

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
