DAY 16: TELOWIE GORGE TO BEETALOO

Today’s distance: 27.95 km

Total: 402.78 km


Today for me was about enjoying the moment.


Walking through Telowie Gorge was a beautiful surprise. The creek was freshly flowing. I stopped for a morning break sitting by the creek savouring a snack. I meandered through the gorge looking at all the flowering plants. Some of them smelt so sweet like lollies.


From the go cart track shelter I walked along the ridge line. Rich green crops to one side and the ocean on another.


The serenity became a beautiful agony. Blessed with ocean views but tortured by walking up and down all of the hills possible!


By the late afternoon I had that ‘glassy eyed’ sensation. I was becoming delirious, my eyes couldn’t focus and I started stumbling. That’s when I realised it would be better for me to stop rather than pushing on to the next campsite. I think I made the right decision here as I watched the sun set over with a view from Port Pirie all the way to Whyalla.
