riding (Explorin') 1:20:00 
After the rainstorm had passed I drove down to Brighton to leave my car there for tomorrow, hopped on the bike and headed north. Half an hour later I was riding past the dunes at West Beach. The smell of wet sand, seaweed and marram grass made me feel like I was somewhere far more remote. Thought I'd better head home from there, so took Military Rd, the footbridge across the Patawalonga, then tried to follow the bike route alongside the (well-flowing) Sturt drain but it kept pointing me in funny directions. At one point I was heading due west past the Old Gum Tree, then I came to a crossroads which had bike symbols in all 4 directions!
Creek channel access appeared to end at Anzac Highway, so I took the old tramway path through Novar Gardens, then across Anzac on Stonehouse, along the current tramline except that at South Rd I must have been on the wrong side of the line to find access to the new overpass, and so had to walk my bike across Main South Rd! From near the pool I just came home East/Winston, satisfied with my exploits.
