Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ American Memorabilia shop, Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula in AUSTRALIA!
Odd Shot Monday prompt
This is really odd! Who would expect to find a bike shop, specialising in American bike memorabilia, a Harley specialist, in Rosebud, right on Port Phillip Bay, about 70km south of Melbourne in Australia! The shop is not in the main shopping mall, but is part of a small cluster of shops where parking nearby is very limited, especially in summer when the tourists arrive for the beach season!
WHY? WHY HERE?
I can only guess! There is a bikie group known as Ulysses in the Rosebud area. This group attracts the older, veteran bikies. Perhaps this shop is a passion of one of the members! Bikies enjoy riding the beach highway and the winding Arthurs Seat mountain road. Perhaps there are enough bikies on the road down this way to make this shop a compulsory pit stop! And the shop is flanked by 2 cafes that seem to do a reasonable trade in all weathers!
And not many shops fly flags here on the Peninsula!
Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A rainy, windscreen view of the shop
This is really the first pic I took. It was raining. But I wanted to include those bikes out the front! So, the wipers went into fast mode to clear the windscreen a bit, and I took the pic before more rain smeared the view! The other pic was taken later in the day when sunlight made a fleeting visit! And the bikes were gone!
