Day 38: Coolum Beach to Boreen Point

Start: 8am
Distance: 49kms
Ride time: 3:14hrs
Average: 15km/hr
Max: 54km/hr 
Finish: 1:45pm

There was a small amount of rain during the night. It was great to wake up to an overcast day with no rain clouds. 

It was a hilly ride between Coolum Beach and Noosa. It didn't take long for me to be saturated in sweat. 

I went in to one shop and the lady asked me what had I been doing to look the way I did. Hehehe.

I must look like absolute trash some times. I just pretend like there's nothing unusual about it and laugh internally at people's reactions.

I had a coffee in Noosa and then went for a walk along the Heads.

This is Tea Tree Bay. It's difficult to see in this pic yet I counted 24 surfers waiting on the same break.

I walked a little further to Dolphin Point and didn't see any dolphins. 

There used to be koalas on this walk. The information centre lady said unfortunately they hadn't been seen in a long time. I was a little disappointed. 

I still have a long way to go on this trip. I'm sure I'll see wild koalas at another time.

This guy was in Noosaville.

When I left Noosa and surrounds, the road looked like this and it became less hilly.

I arrived at Boreen Point. It's right on the edge of Lake Cootharaba.

I had asked the receptionist about the road to Tin Can Bay (tomorrow's destination) earlier and she told me which roads to take.

While I was away from my campsite, she had left me a map with the roads highlighted. Very kind of her.

This is a good park for tents. There are heaps of trees everywhere providing lots of shade.

Today's ride: 49 km (30 miles)
Total: 1,838 km (1,141 miles)

Vince McCarthyThank you Rachel.
It is nice waking up to a dry day even though it's a little hotter.
