Distance: 13 km
Grade: Easy to Moderate (this is my assessment and totally subjective 😊)
Awoke this morning to the sound of rain on the tent…thank goodness that didn’t last long at all. Frank attempted to wipe his tent down…not sure why at the mo especially if it keeps raining 😊
Really looking forward to Nelson tomorrow and having a shower, a good meal at the pub and a nice bed. Frank and I did Rock Paper Scissors for the bed/bunks in Portland, Frank got the bed so I get the bed in Nelson – sounds great to me.
Been missing the internet a bit especially the weather reports so you know what is coming up.
The couple we met yesterday, who had done the WA Walk heard my laugh (from down the road at their canoe camp 😮) this morning so the lady came up to ask more about the Appalachian trail. Her partner was really taken with the idea and I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up doing it.
The views along the river were spectacular and an iPhone just doesn’t do it justice.
Also saw and heard our first Koala in the wild! Had us captivated. Picture isn’t so good as he was up pretty high.
We haven’t built a fire yet although each site has had the facilities and wood available – neither of us has the energy left…as Dad would say: nothing has been left on the field 😊
