I should mention that the last few nights have been pretty cold. I remember wanting to see how I would handle it being colder. Well three days ago it was -2, two days ago a balmy -1 but last night was -4 or more. Now just sitting in the car which was 3 but is now almost 5 waiting for the sun to come up and warm this place up. And just now the sun breaks through. 8:26am -3. Just Skypeing with dad and Opi while I wait. Its now 9am and 0 degrees. hooray for the sun.
I went on a 12km walk recommended by Graeme and it was excellent. I was off to see the 'Bread knife' and 'spire'. It was an incredible 4 hours of hiking which I haven't done much since I left. After this giant walk it was off to another lookout to see where I had just been but from a distance.
It was off to the sliding spring observatory. There I had a coffee and a chat with the workers to find out that the observatory was under maintenance and so I should come back tomorrow and see it. I have decided to do just that. They open a little later at 10am so that should give me time to check out the sandstone Caves that are in the area as well. I did buy a book about astronomy while there.
After that it was in the car and to a rest stop in Binnaway. Here they have a beautiful system set up for campers. Camping and toilets are free, but if you want to splash out you can get a hot shower, 5min for 2$, and a power outlet, 3 hours for 2$. So I have parked near a power outlet and am running my big laptop off of it (somehow I got three hours free, i'm not complaining) and tomorrow I might splash out and have a hot shower!I
Just looked up the weather and it says it will only go down to 5 degrees tonight, I hope they are right, a warmer one wouldn't hurt my feelings tonight!
