Day 2. The Start of Ninety Mile Beach. November 4, 2015.
It rained last night. I woke at 2 am to raindrops. It got heavier and I had to extend the beak on my ZPACKS Hexamid SoloPlus. That was just what i needed to do to stay dry. It was still raining some at 6. By 8 it had stopped and I started walking.
It was more overcast today. The first few kilometers were over the headlands. And then onto 90 Mile Beach. Luckily it isn’t 99 miles long. But it feels like it. It is 83 kilometers.
It was gorgeous at first. And then monotony set in. I saw lots of different shells and resisted the temptation to pick any up. There were several dead puffer fish. 3 dead sharks. Some birds.
And then just a long walk on the beach. With lots of time to think.
Most of us from last night are camped on the south side of The Bluff which is not to be confused with Bluff which is still 2960 kilometers away.
We found great water near this camp. The maps show a creek just to the south of the bluff. Follow this creek up to the grassy area. There is a 4 inch wide pipe filling a horse trough. Good flow when we were there. The last 2 water sources north of here were flowing thru plastic garbage.
