Day 39 - Mirboo to Fish Creek - 174kms
After steak and eggs (pretty sure the steak was one of the cows I petted on my last trip here) we went on a Platypus expedition following the stream down the property line. We didn't see any Platypi but did have fun exploring their property. With the bikes all loaded up we headed south from the farm on dirt roads through rolling pasture land and then dense forest. I spotted a fun looking logging trail and turned off the road with Alicia close behind. It started out easy and then rapidly got steeper with large drainage ditches cut across it. I was wishing I was on a lighter bike to take advantage of the jumps when the headset radio came on and I heard Alicia breathing heavy and struggling with something. I turned around and found her crashed on one of the steep parts with loose gravel. She must have accidentally turned on the headset when her head hit the ground. I parked my motorcycle then checked on Alicia and the bike and luckily both were relatively unscathed. I dusted Alicia off and rode her bike up to the top of the hill and we went further south to Wilson's Promontory National Park which is a large peninsula which just out of the bottom of Victoria into the Bass Straight. Along a river we found a place to park and followed the brackish water out to the ocean. As the brush opened up to a perfect beach with large boulder to one side and sand cliffs to the other, we were greeted by three naked surfers. To my disappointment and Alicia's delight they were all guys so I quickly took pictures (of the beach, not the surfers) and we hiked back to the bikes. We then began our search for the nights accommodation which led us to multiple towns and caravan parks until we found a room in a small town called Fish Creek. There was only ten steps and a staircase between our room and the town pub so we began our evening there and after a quick pizza dinner finished there as well.
