Abends gehen in noch an den Strand zum Weihnachtssingen. Endlich kommt trotz 25 Grad, Meer und Sonnenschein etwas Weihnachtsstimmung auf.
Finally we (Shona and I) hit the road a day and a half late but we are off and plan to stay at Metung for the night. On the highway we have a car come up beside us and get our attention, something is wrong so I pull over and have a look and find the weld on the bike rack has broken and the bikes are 90 degrees to where they should be. The only thing that is stopping them from hitting the ground is the combination lock for the bikes. We eventually make it to Metung and stay the night. It is raining and I got badly bitten by mozzies.Read more
This place ended up being one of the great sunsets of this trip so far. We had set up camp for the night at Chinaman's Creek and decided to walk the couple of kilometres to the town. A great little coffee shop and some further walk to the the boat ramp. By that time it was getting close to sunset. Some great pictures and then a walk back into darkness. The last bit was a but dark with no street lighting. As we walked back the moon was rising in a spectacular show.Read more
