The Beast. There is a lot to like here. Devils head over crossed spanners. Flames. Robot like riveting. This is high art without the statement.
A guy appears n the verandah. “32,000” he shouts out. “30,000” we hear faintly as we disappear around the corner. Make sure you complete the “Ezekiel Beast” quiz.
A guy, a quad, a herd of nervous cows. We wait this one out. Cowwar, Timboon. Here, we are very disappointed to find both the “Ned Kelly” and the “Fat Bastard ” pies are unavailable.
Finally into Moe after detour to find a Pub to watch Pup get his triple century. Scott rejoins after finding Kebab shop. The quickest way home is forward. Moe is a town living down a bad reputation. We meet Ron who is a bike-tourer too, and he opens his house to us. He knows just what we need. i) Cool-down food: sliced rock-melon; and ii) Carbs: Large bowls of curry vegies with rice.
