Dirty Back Road - The B52's

Our first destination for the day was Lake Cania.  A popular spot for pleasure craft.  Pity we didn't have the super yacht with us for a spot of fishing.  I guess it was better for the fish stocks that I didn't drop a line in.

Our next destination was a walk in the NP.  Meandering our way through the rainforest we came to Dripping Rock.

Further along the track we arrived at The Overhang.  Bryce wished he had some climbing gear.  With the humidity increasing we returned to the car for a cold drink.

Plugging the Town of 1770 into the GPS and asking to travel there via the shortest route, we were taken on a tour of some of the farming properties of the area.  The GPS seemed to find every back road between Cania Gorge and the coast.  Despite not always knowing where we were, the scenery was quite pretty and the interesting road seemed to make the journey go quickly.

We stopped by a beautiful river / stream for lunch in the middle of forestry land.  Signs warned us of frequent log trucks but fortunately Hillary didn't have to share the road with any at all.

Continuing on the back roads we arrived into the beachside town of 1770 in time for a cold ale at the Tree.  Deciding it would be rude to only have one - being Friday afternoon and all, we managed to enjoy a few cold ones.

The sandflies were viscous at dusk and any exposed bit of skin seemed to be a target.   Spray, swat, shirt seemed like a good motto for the evening.

Our after dinner entertainment was provided by a couple from Norway.  It was great to meet them!
