... I was being clever with my pose but the photographer was not so good so I had a photo fail. I didn't mind though I thought it was quite funny. I walked around the other side and heard some Aussies talking about how you have to get down low to take a good photo so I asked if they could take one for me.

It was a sunny day, perfect for a bike ride on the tree lined path, and we had beautiful views of the city.
