As the title says, we spent a couple of days relaxing in Port Macquarie. After arriving nice and early on Saturday, it seems like we got an extra day off here. We spent the morning of day 56 relaxing at the cabin. The caravan park is right by the water and really close to the CBD and our cabin has a nice view of the water and people walking along the breakwater. We spent almost the whole day chillaxing other than popping to the supermarket to top-up the food. With all the exercise we seem to eat a lot on days off restocking the reserves. The weather forecast was for 100% chance of 20mm of rain. It was gloriously sunny the entire time we were in Port Macquarie except for a rouge spectacular thunder storm one evening.
On Day 57, again a nice day, we went for a walk around town and visited two bike shops looking for a replacement tire for Jen. Her back tire has had so many bits of wire and glass and been taken off lots of times. This means the bead is lose and it pops on without the need to use tire levers. Also it’s wearing thin. We didn’t manage to find a tire as it seems most shops don’t stock 700x32C tires. We also went for a walk along the breakwater and watched the throngs of body boarders. It seems Port Macquarie is the Australian home of body boarding.
Other than that, we listened to Triple J and relaxed on the deck.
