SUNDAY 27 JUNE MOUNT AUGUSTUS
We got up at 8.30am. Twelve and a half hours in bed!
I felt better than I expected to. Had some leg twinges and behind one knee hurt. John’s legs were sore. This was a measure of how much older and less fit we had gotten, since ’93.
We had a quiet day at the van, though John did stir himself to get under the van and grease some suspension bits.
He refuelled Truck – $1.40cpl.
I read and sewed. Talked for a while with a Perth couple camped nearby.
Think John might be getting the cold. He had a sore throat yesterday, and was sneezing a lot today.
Near sundown, we drove out to Emu Hill Lookout, to see the sunset on the rock. Because it has more vegetation on it, the mountain does not have quite the visual effects that Ayers Rock can produce.
But, as the shadows lengthened, the red light on the mountain was pretty special.
