It was a long and cold day, with a fierce westerly wind blowing. The one advantage was that it was behind me. Thankfully, I didn’t get wet.

Despite the road being a key highway, it was not busy at all. I passed a lot of sheep, and some cattle. They are all scared of me for some reason. However, one cow did let me pat it.

Late in the morning, I crossed from South Australia into Victoria. I am now in the same time zone as my finishing point in Sydney. After a whole world of time zone changes, I now have no more time zones to cross.

I’m looking forward to a better day of weather tomorrow, but my hopes may be forlorn. I’ll just have to grin and bear it, however the day turns out.
