|Yesterday’s Distance: 28km||Total Distance: 931.5km|
Yesterday we had a very short and relaxing morning’s bike from Broulee to Batemans Bay. It rained overnight but the weather cleared and it turned into a nice warm day. We packed up the wet tent and were on the road by 9:30am. We cycled through Broulee (followed by a friendly dog) then leisurely cycled through the villages towards Batemans Bay. We stopped at Malua Bay at a café and had a cup of tea while watching the surfers. At Batehaven we picked up the cycle path which took us all the way into Batemans Bay.
After checking in at the Big4 Caravan Park and treating ourselves to the cabin, we showered then walked back over the bridge into town. We grabbed some lunch then wandered around town, did some shopping and Will got a haircut. Later in the afternoon we went to the movies to see Company You Keep with Robert Redford (it was OK, average). Going to the movies in the afternoon always seems like a treat and a real holiday thing to do.
Today we are having a day off, our first since Merimbula 6 days ago. We’ve dried the tent, done some laundry, planned the route ahead and updated this blog. Later we’ll go for a walk and look around Batemans Bay some more. We are looking forward to Jervis Bay further up the coast.
Highlight of yesterday: Looking forward to a day off today.
