Blackwood River to Carey Creek
85 km (52.7 mi)

spent most of the morning clacking away on the laptop in the tent...getting the travel site up to date. Good thing I have five batteries with me, although I'm on the last of the five. It was good to get everything caught up, though I'm probably forgetting some details of the stay in Perth.

Got on the road around 11am. Stopped at the store about 5km up the road. This is the second store in Australia that wouldn't just give me water...had to buy it. It hasn't been raining lately. I'm not complaining...but I thought I'd have water trouble out near the Great Sandy Desert...not here. Sat on hold for 30 minutes with my credit card company, only to find out the fraud department had just closed. Fuggers. Called Maree (hi!). Ended up getting some food and didn't get going till nearly 1pm.

The ride was nice the whole day. I took a long gravel backroad most of the day. Realized I wouldn't get to Pemberton before dark so I just hung it up here. Had to look around for awhile to find a decent spot to camp before darkness set in...kinda like a dog spending 10 minutes looking for a spot to pee. Gotta run, there is one of those Quokka things running around my camp, (s)he got so close I had to use the macro setting on my camera.

If I was a blues singer I could use this for an album cover photo with some stuff about "standing at the same old crossroads again with a bug net and helmet on my head"
