No Stars this morning, the sky was overcast but that meant we had cloud cover for a lot of the morning and that makes walking much more pleasant. Last night was Sheree’s first experience of camping out and she was very excited to be walking. I was pleasantly surprised at the pace we were able to walk. Adele had earned a few blisters on her feet the day before but with the help of band-aids she soldiered on with no complaints. After about 12 klms Sheree was feeling exhausted, then Adele spotted a beautiful running creek. We left the trolley beside the road to let the guys know where we were, then struggled through the long grass, stripped off and soaked in the wonderful cool running water. The guys stopped and waved to us from the bridge then continued on to set up camp. This revived us all and Sheree was able to continue on till the next break. After food and a good rest, Potts and Bindi joined us in the last 5 klms That night we were joined by my friend Di and her husband Bill from Brisbane , Kim and Rita from Brisbane, Peit from Kin Kin and once again Liz, she just cant stay away. Di quickly set up (on the esky) a pre dinner snack, cheeses, dips, dried tomatoes, fetta and olives. While we were enjoying that Di then put a huge pot of beef and veg stew to heat, along with garlic bread. All this as we sat, some in chairs, others on mats and cushions in this beautiful country side, and watched the sun set in the west. After dinner with now three guitars, we all enjoyed a singsong, the first being the song Liz wrote for us about the walk. A few of us then retired to listen to the music as we fell asleep.
