A Touch of Frost! Crystal Brook to Port Germein

Woke up to a heavy frost this morning. Had to wait until the fly thawed out before we could pack the tent. Slept warmly but frozen fingers and toes on the bike for a while.

Followed the Flinders Range on a nice flat road with a tail wind and arrived at sleepy Port Germein well before lunch. Took a cabin at the caravan park on the beach. Seems they have no tent sites. Looks as though we're the only guests! No shops so it's soup and a Mrs Macs pie for dinner!

Port Germein is famous for having the longest wooden wharf in Australia and, in the early 1900s was the largest grain exporting port. The wharf is 1.676kms long!

We're enjoying the warmth and comfort of our cabin. We'll be roughing it in the bush very soon.

50kms today.
