I bet you are all wondering how our night went in our humble 1 room abode!
Well, the evening ended with a little bit of scotch and wine consumption! Anything to help us drift sweetly into the dark night. Conversation began to dwindle at about 10, and it was clear we were already to get some shut eye! Of course, with the bathrooms a good 500 meters away, you can bet what was on my mind as I drifted off to sleep!
An hour later, I’m lying in bed thinking maybe I should get up and take the pause that refreshes when all of a sudden there a crash, boom, crackle on the other side of the room! In Glenn’s defence it was so dark you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face! I tried to lend some light with my watch (which surprisingly enough lit up that you could at least see in that black room)… Long story short, Glenn ( Crash Manderson, as christened by Gwen)was up twice, I was up twice and Gwen was up once… The squeak on the door was like a siren! Dan, having a true gift for sleep, didn’t wake up once!!!
Our alarm went off at 6, and we began to get ready… It was a little slow, had to cook outside and it was only about 8C! We had some long drives in to position our cars for our short hike today … All in all we it the trail by 8:20. Why you ask???? Because parking our cars in the National park any later than 8 am would ensure we had no space in which to park!!!!
Whatever it was, it was the nastiest walking surface that we have found so far… But wait, it actually gets worse! But I get ahead of myself!
We headed back along the trail to our first car, and then back home. A short day, so the hammock was strung up and a nap was in order. Once our afternoon ablutions were completed we headed out to dinner, and of course our isotonic drink!
And now we’re off for a sunset cruise! Hopefully I’ll be able to postboxes updates tonight!!!
