Roadtrip Down Under Day 5

What happens on the road stays on the road!

"Dear Loes, apparently yesterday we passed a lobster. I have no recollection of this marvelous creature and would like to revisit it. I understand that it's a few kilometers back but with your fluidity with numbers we will be back there in no time. Regards Chita."

Today we left Salt Creek on our way to Victor Harbour. Yesterday was a tough day on the bike. (See note above). Today we were suprised that for the first time our kilometers were reduced. Flexibility! Loes lead us out of the Salt Creek Road House and taught us the finer details of diagonal echelon formation.

Armed with this knowledge we tore up the highway,
wildlife scattering as we went. 37kms later with a decent average we had our first stop. The team split with half shuttled on the support bus to Victor Harbour, and the rest with Loes to be picked up later on up the road. Arriving at Victor Harbor. it was good to see the ocean.

The wind was favourable,
and great speed was made by those left with an added extra of a small ferry ride. The team reunited at the motel once again. Tomorrow is another day with our final run to Adelaide. All in.
