What a restful day I had today. I just hung out around the motel most of the day with my feet propped up and relaxed. 

My day started with a 50 yard walk across the road to the gas station for breakfast. You can use your imagination on what a nutritious meal I got there. Then I walked 50 yards back to my room to do some serious route review and planning for my next two weeks of walking. 

Tomorrow I had planned to walk east from here towards the coast for about 25 miles to a bus stop and catch the bus from there to the town where my next motel is located, which was another 25 miles away. Then Sunday I would catch the bus back to the bus stop and walk the rest of the way to the motel. This plan was put together months ago when I first planned out this trip. However, there was a better, and significantly shorter route available that also involved a bus ride to my next motel at the end of the day, but that bus route does not run on weekends. So I had decided I was stuck with walking the longer route, which adds 17 miles to my walking distance over the next two days. But then the nice gentleman, Harry, who owns this motel where I’m staying now, said if I wanted to walk the shorter route he’d drive out and pick me up and bring me back to his motel since there is no bus service. So I called tomorrow nights motel and cancelled, Harry will pick me up tomorrow afternoon on my new, shorter route, and I can stay here another night. Then he’ll drop me back off Sunday morning and I’ll press on from there. I love it when a plan comes together. 

Finally, I’ve had the TV on most of the day just to provide background noise, and all they’ve been talking about is Taylor Swift’s concerts in Melbourne this weekend.  Then, she moves her tour to Sydney, just down the road from where I’m walking, next weekend. If the hype gets any bigger as she gets closer to where I’m currently located, there may not be enough oxygen left to breathe in eastern Australia after all the Swifties get through hyperventilating.  JB.
