Alec's riding and really strong so that's great news. We're on the road together at last. We left Bega before lunch and got into the next town Bermugui as it was closing. A beautiful place overlooking a bay and an old volcano. The pub gave us a room for an impromptu show but nobody much listened and the beds we're already taken - by bed bugs. We should rather have asked for the meal as we have the tent.
In the morning we did yoga on the beach and then swam in the sea. All the cycling and sea air and quiet small towns means no night life so we're often in bed by 9 and then up at 5.30 with the sunrise. Makes you feel great.
