After dinner yesterday I went for a walk across the sand dunes to the beach. The walk took about 20 minutes and I was fortunate to see a lot of emus and kangaroos. When I got to the beach I decided to enjoy the sunset. It was a great end to a perfect day.

This morning I woke up and it was pretty windy outside. Thankfully the wind was blowing the direction I was planning on going. I left camp at about 7am, thanks to the tailwind I got to Kingston SE just after 10am (about 70kms away).
Kingston is a reasonable size town and has two landmarks, an old lighthouse and a giant lobster. I stopped here for breakfast and relaxed for about a hour. As my destination is Robe, which is about anther 40km away.

When I left Kingston the lovely tailwind decided to turn into a mean crosswind. So the next 40km was a little bit slower than I had expected. But I still got to Robe just after 1pm.
Robe is a very pretty seaside town. It has kept a lot of its old buildings. So once I set my tent up at the campsite, I got myself a coffee and cake. The first good coffee since Adelaide. I then just relaxed around town before heading back to the campsite.
Tomorrow my distances being ridden should be a bit less than the last few days. As the towns are a little bit closer together. Hopefully it won't be as windy tomorrow.
