It came time again to set off on my bicycle for the last push on to Adelaide to complete my cycle between the cities. I’d been advised by my hosts that I could cut out Elliston, saving 30km, via a 30km dirt road. Whilst slow going on the dirt road, it was a pleasurable cycle on an empty road under a warm sun. Listening to an audiobook once off the main road, made possible by a light tail wind that therefore wasn’t blowing in my ears, in addition to the almost complete absence of traffic,, I cycled joyfully the 114km to Lock.
The caravan park is small, unassuming, and very quiet, but all the better for it. Unassuming because the showers here are great and the facilities clean and even inviting. At the local post office, where I’d been instructed by the signage to pay my caravan park rates, I enjoyed a good chat with the local staff before returning round the corner to the caravan park to make my pasta and pesto dinner just as the sun was setting.
