Having a Heatwave! Bodalla to Batemans Bay

We were the only guests at the Bodalla Arms Hotel last night. At 7.30am we tiptoed along dark, eerie corridors to the hotel garage to retrieve our bikes from amongst the woodpiles and equipment.

In April we had record cold temperatures and now we're having record highs.

We took the alternative coastal route from Moruya, that hotelier Terry had suggested. It was 14kms longer, but fewer hills were promised. The first 14kms were flat and fast but after that we hit the hills again - and walked 20 of them!

The road took us through pretty seaside towns to Batemans Bay. It's an attractive, harbour town on the Shoalhaven Coast with launches and yachts moored in the estuary which is spanned by a 200m bridge. We arrived at Big 4 Batemans Bay Caravan Park only to find that they didn't have tent sites, so we took a comfy cabin.
Sleeping in a bed again tonight!

Did 60kms today.
