National Parks instead of Melbourne Cup

After a long wet night we decided the tents needed to dry out a little and we only left Bermagui around noon. The road took us past some wonderful beach scenes and in and out of several national parks.

Whilst Australia stood still for the Melbourne Cup we rode up and down many hills in the Mimosa Rocks National Park where Hans told me I was losing my Mojo and made me stop to eat our last half a bread roll and banana. Hans sure keeps a good eye on me, I picked up straight after and full of energy arrived in Tathra around 5pm.

Today we saw an elderly Belgian couple cycling in the opposite direction, carrying all their gear, and we also saw a Chech man in his late 40s! All foreigners having the fun here in Australia, including me being Dutch and Hans being German!

The friendly management of the Tathra Beach Tourist Park offered us free accommodation for the night on hearing we were riding for Cystic Fibrosis. There is a young man in Tathra who also has CF and he will be given a link to this website! We set up the tents with a big smile.
