|The newest bridge, Ginger probably meditating on the acquisition|
of yet more chequered shorts, Schwinns.
|My Professional Bike Model career was tragically cut short by genetics and a refusal|
to go topless so now I pose on bike paths in the hopes of inconveniencing Roadies.
I briefly posed publicly with the Jenny, much to the consternation of two locals. The middle-aged couple stood open mouthed and watched us dismount (the bikes, not each other - It would have made more sense, otherwise) even prior to the appearance of my camera. I didn't tell them there were teenagers enjoying skateboards around the corner. They might have lost their minds.
|Dotted along the river, boats wait patiently for somebody to acknowledge them. Never forget.|
|The Leven is quite tidal, sometimes leaving waterfront buildings to languish on the sands.|
And Gingers to stare into the middle-distance.
|We always see a lot of bikes in Ulverstone as their infrastructure is superior|
and their hills less disruptive of the town footprint.
|The older bridge.|
|Ulverstone has a Summer holiday vibe and a superfluity of playgrounds.|
If that's even possible. But it seems like there's a swing every 100 metres.

Ulverstone also has many parks and the ones bordering the Leven each have a military theme. There is a Naval park, an ANZAC park and then the above pictured small, playground-less park tucked away around a corner on the west side of the river. A charming sign proclaims it to have been named after a military camp of strategic importance. The camp was called 'Eagle' because the soldiers had nailed a dead eagle to a tall tree to mark the way. Perhaps it's best that there's no swings at Eagle Corner.
|But there is a giant globe in the naval park where you can finger a map of Tasmania.|
