Day 76: Friday 17th May 2013

Soggy Friday

semi-overcast 21 °C

We woke up reasonably early: eager to get on the road before we got moved on from our overnight spot, or fined, or both! We went into town and despite the rain had a quick look around. The rain was torrential. I have become aware of my reluctance to 'get involved' when the weather is wet, I'm not sure I was always like that or if, after so many sunny days in Australia, I have just become more picky: I'm sure after a couple of weeks in the UK that will change! We managed to see some of the town before taking refuge from the rain in the local library: it had free wifi!
We decided to move our Sunday activity in Wotomo to Saturday so we weren't hanging around waiting for Sunday: we were both keen to make the most of our last few days if travelling. Once our black water rafting had been confirmed for first thing Saturday morning we set off for Wotomo. The original plan was to do the Alpine walk, which is reputed to be one of the best walks in the country but the rain was due to stick around for the next 3 days; we decided to give it a miss, especially as we weren't fully equipped for the potential weather conditions.
We arrived late afternoon in Wotomo and checked into the holiday park. The park was pretty nice and we enjoyed making our last evening meal in the camp kitchens before getting an early night.
