It's been awhile since we've been anywhere on the bike and with it just back on the road yesterday I decided to go for short ride today.

With The Big Dice about an hour away from home and not having seen them before it was time we made the effort.

We ran non stop with a minor hiccup being an emu beside our side of the road and apart from avoiding few dead hoppers (roo) on the road it was easy run up. Lots of Emus in the paddocks on the Northern side of the road as well. https://goo.gl/maps/F97fvKks6dB2

Passing through Yunta we noticed a few bikes at the Caltex and we saw them again heading East while we were heading West back to home.

I had the Go Pro with me for the ride out and I'll go through it later and see what I come up with.

Didn't wait for the camera to focus before hitting the shutter and it looks as if the picture turned out ok.

With the rail line close by we walked next to it for this shot.

Alan. That's an interesting feature. What's the story behind the dice?

Nothing other than a few pictures on line about the dice.

They're not sign posted on the highway either and the track that leads to them would been left over from when the rebuilt the rail line from narrow to standard gauge and the new bridge for the creek crossing.
