Suburban shuffle after a Killer Massage and so that I didn't stiffen up too much while sitting in OSA council meeting later on. To add interest to suburbia, grabbed an Oaklands Park street O map which turned out to be so old that it's from back when the wetlands were still the driving school where I got my P's...and ISSprOM hadn't been invented yet (nor even ISSOM 2007). I stopped to watch the birds on the water, a bunch of plovers were kicking up a fuss flying around and bothering what I think may have been a Nankeen night heron, so that was an exciting sighting (although my bird book does say that the juvenile Nankeens can be confused with Australasian Bitterns, and both of these are on the list of birds which have been sighted at Oaklands Wetlands).
Kinda miss the multistorey Meccano set pedestrian trainline overpass at Marion Station as the new underpass while totally functional lacks the original housing-trust grunge factor. Admittedly, halfway up was always a really annoying place to have a control especially if your planned route didn't include crossing over the railway. And TBH, there's no way in any of the mapping specifications to have shown the elevated zigzag ramp.
In other news, finally got around to getting new passport photos today, first step to renewing my passport which has been expired for nearly 3 years. The photos are decidedly unflattering though, make me look as though I've done a long-haul flight already! Still, don't think this is any excuse for AP thinking that I am so old that the ads alongside my log are advertising Sneeze Weez Absorbant (sic) Underwear :(
