Day 25

Posted by on January 24, 2024

Start:  Cobargo

Finish:  Narooma

Distance:  23

Total:  409

Today’s walk was a challenging 23 miles on a nice weather day that took me through some thick forested terrain with plenty of traffic to share the route with. 

I got started at 8:00 after breakfast at the local bakery in Cobargo. Immediately after getting on the road out of town I started my first of many climbs for the day. The weather was sunny for the first hour then it became overcast which was fine with me. 

I use Google earth to plan my route on these walks so you really can’t tell what the terrain is because the view is from above the route. So today I was surprised to find about an hour into my walk there was a large mountain that I would spend the better part of the day walking around. This turned out to be Mt. Dromedary. Of course the engineers built the road around the side of the mountain, but the foothills caused me to spend most of the day going up and down along a winding route through the forest. Once again, all of this area burned in 2019 in the big bushfire. 

About two hours before I reached my destination of Narooma I came up a rise and right in front of me was the Tasman Sea shoreline. I paralleled the shoreline the rest of the way into town. Tonight I’m staying at the Top of the Town Motel. That should tell you what I spent the end of the day doing; walking to the top of the town. Narooma is a very nice little tourist town of about 3000. The aboriginal meaning of the word Narooma is “clear blue water.”  Though I haven’t had a chance to go down to see the beach, I understand the water is especially blue. 

Tomorrow I continue north up the Tasman Sea coast 26 miles to Moruya. Lucky for me the elevation changes along my route aren’t quite so dramatic tomorrow. 

That’s all for today. I’m closing in on Sydney. I’ll be there in less than two weeks. JB. 

I spent the day walking around Mt. Dromedary.
Round ‘n round and up ‘n down….
