    Most of the long crossings were fine and had a solid base of rock, but not this one. . Remember Lucas saying stick to the main track is usually best, which is true but not with this one lol. Didn't get any pics but sunk in this stinky swamp old girl took on a bit of water slop etc. . .

    Found a beautiful camp near the beach on the way down to Sandy Cape. Unfortunately wind picked up in the night and got a bit wild. .

    Didn't see much of the old mine, would defiantly be good to go back and explore. Didn't do the walk down to the river either but would be good to do one day expect it would be beautiful. Interestingly Nicole bought a book from Corinna a couple days prior called the Balfour Corespondent which has published letters written by Sylvia McArthur to the Weekly Corrier after they moved from Zeehan to Balfour in 1911 when she was 14. I didn't walk down to the cemetery as were a bit tight on time but Nicole did and saw her grave, yeah interesting and sad as she died a year later at 15.
