Along the Rin Rin road part 3

As it was nearing lunch time we were keen for a brew up and a bite to eat so Brian spotted a old shrine over the other side of the river. After a little bit of backtracking we arrived at the shrine we had seen and I set about boiling up some water on my vintage Optimus 8R gas cooker. I don't know why but it took several matches to get it going but when I finally got it going the water for our coffee was ready in no time. The joys of cycle touring or in this case pottering along a cycle road are that you can take your time and enjoy the day rather than racing to get to your destination.

Pictured above are a few photos taken at the shrine including one of a stone statue lion wearing a cap & smoking a pipe exactly the same as mine.
