Round 5 Day 12

Epic Day!

Dave and I went to Shipstern Bluff. We took the 'scenic route' so it took 2 hours to get there, but we always enjoy the drive, listening to some of our favorite music and looking at the views.

The walk to Shipstern was really beautiful, with great views and spring flowers and we saw a snake and and three echidnas. 
It's described as a 4 hour walk - we were out for 6 hours! Some of walk was steep and pretty challenging for me. It's a little frustrating for me as it really highlights how much fitness I've lost over these 4 months. However that time does include lots of stopping to take photos, enjoy views and eat our delicious packed lunch that Dave prepared for us.
And what a spectacular walk! Well worth it - I'd like to go again when I'm fitter and do the Cape Raoul walk too.
Dave and I were both tired and achy after the walk. Dave did ALL the driving. I skipped my exercises that evening!

And as we approach my last round of Chemo, my nerves are really jangling, so I still couldn't sleep last night!
