DAY 20: day 1 off in Esperance

Thurs 25 Oct 07

20 km tootling about (too much!)

Still feeling very tired this morning so need to chill out. Another clear blue sky and threat of high temps. As the weather might change tomorrow I was advised to check out the Great Ocean Drive cycle track which winds for 10km around the sandy beaches and idyllic blue sea to the west. This I did then, but found the steep hills exhausting, and flies so numerous as to be unbearable, so curtailed the ride sooner rather than later. I’m also troubled by saddle sores which have reached a peak today - not to put too fine a point on it I can hardly sit down, let alone on a bike saddle.I bought some goodies and headed home to the YHA and spent tyhe rast of the day gently servicing the bike and chatting endlessly to guests coming and going, this on a balcony facing the blue sea only 100m away, one of the finest views you can imagine.That was mostly it for the day then - just relaxing and nothing much going on - lovely!
