“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 274 – 2nd February, Tuesday, Dee Why to Huskisson. NSW.

We drove into Dee Why and went to Gabby’s house before all venturing down to the beach for a swim. They have wonderful seawater swimming pools at the shoreline here which fill up with the tide and then get pumped out to be cleaned once a week only to fill again by morning with the new incoming tide. Fantastic – you can swim in the sea every day without battling the strong waves or losing your bikini.
We said our goodbyes to them around lunchtime and drove south through the Kangaroo valley which is beautiful – green rolling hills and vast lush farmland – not unlike some parts of England – except much more spacious of course and with stilted wooden houses.
