Day 50

Posted by on February 18, 2024

Start:  Coolongolook

Finish:  Nabiac

Distance:  11

Total:  800

I had an easy walking day up the freeway today. Only 11 miles to cover on a Sunday morning with almost no trucks to deal with.  

Harry Wright, the motel manager here in Bulahdelah, drove me 18 miles north to the town of Coolongolook, dropping me off at 9:30. I immediately went into a Mobil station and got some breakfast, then started walking. It was nice and shady most of the morning and I made it to my destination of Nabiac by 1:00. Nabiac is a very small town, but it did have several places to get lunch. I chose the Greenhouse Cafe. That’s where I met Pam, Kathy, Marion, and Robin; four nice ladies sitting at the adjacent table who were passing through Nabiac on a golf vacation. We talked for the better part of an hour while we ate our lunch. It’s always nice to have a conversation with locals. I learn a lot from these interactions. 

After lunch, I called Harry and he drove up from Bulahdelah and hauled me back to the motel. Tomorrow I had planned to catch the bus at 7:00 AM to Nabiac and pick up walking where I stopped today. However, Harry said he is going to Coolongolook tomorrow morning at 7:45 and will drive a little farther up the freeway to Nabiac and drop me off so I don’t have to take the bus. That is very nice of him. He has been a big help for the last few days. 

So that’s 50 days down, 26 to go. But who’s counting?  JB. 

Harry Wright, motel manager, has gone above and beyond for me.
