Distance: 14km (8.7 miles)
We had only walked 20 minutes today when somebody on the track stopped his car for a chat. He owned a couple of trailers a bit further up the road, and was on his way out. He immediately pointed out to us where we could find his trailers, and said we were welcome to use his gazebo for lunch if we wanted to. We didn’t, because we had just started, but appreciate gestures like these enormously!
Just before we reached Norris Arm, we ran into a group of ATV’ers, who were on their way home from a multi-day fishing trip. They stopped their engines and came out of their ATV’s to have chat with us. It was so much fun talking to them!
We’ll stop in Norris Arm for a few days, to wait for the rain to pass and give B’s shin a rest – it begins to protest a little because of overuse. Not the worst place to be stuck; we have a great view out of our cabin window on Norris Arm.
