Yesterday was my weekly motorbike group ride and it was hot and dry. Fires continue to rage nearby and everyone keeps an eye on the wind direction.

|Normally our landscape is green and lush. We're in drought but rain|
is predicted for tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
Took my $15.00 I had in my purse and had quite a find. Enjoy the photos as I enjoyed the coolness.
|The Hops fields are doing well as they are irrigated. Located|
