Sunday 27th Jan To Binalong Bay and back

We left our tent and most of our kit in the tent and headed along a peninsula to Binalong Bay.
We got some food and drink at the IGA as we went past and the clouds were looking black. Once we had got our shopping it was hard rain and I stopped to take a photo of the signpost to Binalong and had to shelter in the doorway of a shop to stop the camera getting wet. Right in my shot was a guy standing there and he then went to talk to Catherine. It turned out it was Peter who we were with on our first day when we went walking with the Dorset walkers.
After a chat with Peter we set off and it rained hard. Blue sky started to come on the horizon and by the time we got to Binalong we had been through a storm and then totally dried off again. The rest of the day was hot sunshine and great white beaches and blue skies with puffy white clouds. It was a beautiful area and we cycle on to bay of fires and tried to take all the dirt tracks that went of into the bush on their way to fantastic beach after fantastic beach. We made our way back to Binalong and went to the cafe there and got a table on prime spot to see a view of the bay. Everyone said this was a spot to see and we were not disappointed. We had a great day cycling with wonderful sea and beach views. In the evening we cooked some porterhouse steak using the camp gas BBQ. It was delicious. The camp site standards seem to be excellent with brilliant facilities always with well resourced camp kitchens and lots of room for unpowered tent sites. This was a real treat and helped us keep up our standards of comfort etc. Up early tomorrow to begin our climb from the coast back towards Scottsdale. Hope the wind is kind to us.
