DAY 42: WAITPINGA TO TUNKALILLA

Today's distance: 23.53 km Total: 1,109.97 km


The new hiking lifestyle that I have lived and loved is coming to an end in a few days. I enjoy every experience out here, as amazing or as painful as it is. I want to take in as much of the final days as I can here, so I'm walking shorter distances and soaking up the ocean views until I hit Cape Jervis.


With good friend Sophie, we started the day which led us to Waitpinga beach. If you've walked on the beach before you know it can be challenging. So imagine an extra 20 kgs to that.


We walked along beaches, valleys and fence lines. Sophie thought the view of Tunkalilla beach with Kangaroo Island in the distance was a movie scene. The purple salvation Jane, white moths and a Kangaroo hopping in the distance was seriously unreal.

The steep descent took us to the peachy coloured beach of Tunkalilla where we set up camp. Here we swam, had a cuppa and ate some chocolate. Incredible.



FUNDRAISER UPDATE Less than $1k to go until we can get the van. We are so close to the dream. If you can spare a few bucks please check out my cause. https://www.mycause.com.au/page/230102/safe-women-and-children-project
