We made it! Small Rest Area to Coober Pedy

Had a great night's sleep. Woke to a tail wind! Yay!

Packed enthusiastically and got away at 7.45am. What a joy it was to be cycling effortlessly again.

We passed kms of iron mines and then opal mines punctuated with endless railing mounds.

Arrived in quirky Coober Pedy before 11.00am and took a budget cabin at the Oasis Caravan Park. The park and the whole town is bustling with tourists.

Both of us resembling gypsies after 4 days in the outback. Can't wait for a hot shower and some fresh fruit and vegies! We'll stay 2 nights here and investigate Coober Pedy tomorrow.

Now ritually shaking our shoes and clothes for spiders as we've come across a few. Did 50kms today.

PS Have done 862kms altogether already!
