Some more pics from the weekend.

General pic of the group looking south

The flies were thick at the memorial site. TJ shoos them away, is that one above his cap!

Gags, Lynne the Pillion, Ash (who arranged the plaque and the mounting of it) with Toura's wife Julie and me on the end beside the memorial rock

The memorial plaque and also showing local Indigenous Elder, Badger Bate's carving of a boomerang and motorbike. Badger's carving seems somehow fitting in that when we ride our motorbikes always ensure we come back home, just like a boomerang

I thought I would redo the links from Google Photos site where our pics are saved, logged into it and then they reappeared in the forum. Strange!

And now I notice when I log out of Google Photos the pics in the forum disappear again. Thoughts?

Edited again.. I just saved the pics onto the forum again and they seem ok even when I sign out of the Google Photo Account. Touch wood they stay that way.
