Sandon River to Minnie Water
I managed to get up early again to see the sunrise.
Another of the many beach sculptures.
The next campground at Minnie Water is over an hour away by road, so only Marg, Olive, Irene and Carol are walking this one. Rob, Bev, Fons and I will drive and set up camp at Illaroo, the national park campground near Minnie Water. No showers again.
There is no bridge over the Sandon River and, although narrow, it is too deep to wade, so Rob took the walkers across in the kayak. Here Olive is preparing for the crossing.
Carol on the way across.
Irene was a bit apprehensive but handled it well.
Fons captured the crossing on video.
All made it safely to the other side without incident.
The walkers arrived soon after we had set up camp at Illaroo.
I found some patterns in the water seeping onto the beach.
During the evening a line of storms passed well out to sea, giving us a spectacular, though distant, light show.
In the campground, away from city lights, the Milky Way was spectacular.
