Our second day out of Bowen was probably the hardest days walk yet for me. Yesterday afternoon was quite windy and I think that is why I woke up this morning with a sore neck/shoulder. Carrying the flag was very hard against the wind, so I needed a few panadol to get started.
Today the wind was stronger than yesterday and after the 1st hour I was really struggling, the road verge was very narrow and at times I was blown back a few steps when semi-trailers whizzed past. We kept struggling through undergrowth to find the old road where we were sheltered from wind by trees. I was very pleased to arrived at Lisa’s beautiful place just outside Proserpine, and rest.
