Surrounded by smoke we've been. The control burning in Gipplsand has really impacted on the coast hundreds of kilometres away, it seemed the further north we went the more visibility was reduced. By the time we got to Pambula we had our lights on, but on the cliff top at Merimbula at least the air was clear enough to see to pitch the tent.
Until a change in the breeze around midday today started to disperse it, apart from an interesting but not particularly photo worthy sky at sunrise, the smoke seemed to draw all of our enthusiasm for discovery.
So we did what we like to think we are beginning to do very well: nothing in particular. Well nothing apart from knitting a few booties and talking to neighbours and catching up with old friends till much later than we had planned.
After a full day in Merimbula, all we have to show for it is a smoke effected view of the bay in Eden.
