Meningie to Strathalbyn 90km
Long Flat straight, long flat straight, long flat straight, slight bend, long flat straight, wind in face, long straight, rain in face, cold cold cold, Murray River Ferry, hot chocolate, cold long flat straight, cold wet long flat straight, Sun? Long Flat straight, wine area, big barrels, a hill......and finally Strathalbyn.
That was my day. Cold, windy and tough. Having got to the end of a straight section, you go around a slight bend.....and there's another straight flat road ahead.......I chuckle......you're not going to beat me Australia......
Lots of bird life today, as I passed through swampy country. Saw two dead foxes....they are a real pest over here, along with rabbits and starlings. The Murray River was pretty impressive, but I was so cold I hid in the Cafe with a hot chocolate. It was here I heard the results...Chile 3 Aussie 1, Aussie 6 France 0, and the best....NZ 28, England 27.......sorry Dr John. I told you you were cheering the wrong team.
The ladies at the Info Centre were fantastic, and found the Rev David Smith for me. David and Eileen are President and Secretary of the local Lions, (for one more week), and their warm shower was oh so welcome.
This evening Wifi, and a chance to catch up with those at home. Fantastic. But must not forget the time zones....
Over 1000 km on my bike in Australia. 50km to get to Adelaide tomorrow.
