Snakes Alive! Nowra to Shell Harbour Village

Local news reports that a man was bitten by a poisonous snake in Kaima yesterday. Lo and behold we spotted one as we entered Shell Harbour Village today.  It was dark brown, around 0.5m (looks more like a threadworm in the photo) and we gave it a wide berth.

Weather continues to be gloriously warm and sunny.

Had a mixed day of cycling. Contrary to the advice from the 'i' centre, we decided to avoid the mad traffic on the Princes Highway and, instead, take the coastal Bolong Road. Good decision! 27kms of flat, fast road with minimal traffic.

Eventually it rejoined the Princes Highway where we struck 2.5kms of major road works. Cycling would have been too dangerous so we walked it instead, as close to the barrier as we could, with a continuous line of heavy traffic roaring past - really nerve-wracking!

From Kaima we discovered an impressive dedicated cycle lane that took us all the way to Shell Harbour. We're hoping that it continues to Wollongong tomorrow.

Did 56kms today.

Warm enough for a swim. Shell Harbour Village
