Dr Ellis Park

 I was at the beginner cycling event in Hunter River this evening, by 7:30 the clouds started looking like rain.

The unit with the B 35 on it was for the tracks to move a train onto a siding. The community should be proud of their park, it is very nice.  The rain started as I was unloading the bike at home.
I donated plasma in the morning.
