THURSDAY 15 SEPTEMBER ADELS GROVE
Today we decided to stop being lazy.
Drove to the National Park to go canoeing.
This was a really nostalgic activity for us. We had done the paddle, on both the Middle and Upper Gorges, several times before, when working at Adels.
On this hot day, it was really pleasant being out on the water.
We slowly paddled up through the Middle Gorge, as far as Indarri Falls.
But there were limits to our motivation to be energetic, and we did not feel like going to all the effort of taking the canoe out of the water and around the falls, to do the Upper Gorge.
So we paddled about in circles at Indarri, for a little while, then went back.
That was a lovely way to finish off our few days here.
The tourist season was really slowing down at Adels. There were not many campers in the Grove, and the main campground was only sparsely occupied, as well. We sort of knew that anyway, because V and F had been able to finish up work here before they came to visit us. Our stay would have been even more enjoyable had they still been here.
Still, it was very pleasant to have the break here. The atmosphere of the place is so serene.
John refuelled Truck here – $1.50cpl. We had done 440kms.
