Day 48 Rain into Peaceful Bay

I left at 7am after a night of fighting off mosquitoes. The day looked okay but half way to Peaceful Bay it began to rain just a little. There was a lot of close foliage through the sand hills so I arrived very wet at the caravan Park about 10.30am

Up and over the sandhills
Dark clouds chasing me

I had walked 22km along 4 beaches, then up over rocks and sandhills with the last couple of kilometers being hard work on  soft sand.

Hello kangaroo
That was hard work
More pretty flowers
A bit of rain to wet the foliage
Rocks make a change

It was Aussie windy and cold on the top

Just a wee bit of wind and rain

I was very happy to arrive and even happier to be told that Bibbulmun Track walkers are allowed to sleep in the camp kitchen rather than pitching tents in the rain. I made my bed on the table and used my mask as the fluorescent lights stayed on all night. One guy made his bed under a table and hung his coat down the side to keep the light out.

Home for the night in the camp kitchen

The very expensive fish burger and a packet of Tim Tams went down well for lunch. I had fish and chips for dinner as well. Two fast food meals in one day is allowed when one has walked 800km in 7 weeks! There wasn’t much choice for eating out as there was only the one shop.
