Day 3 riding

Bill decided to head back home.  He gave lots of suggestions on routes for the way north to meet up with Ian.  He also gave me a map of the north coast of New South Wales.  I was glad to have him leading the way for the first few days, especially since I'm not quite used to riding on the left side of the road.  Thanks, Bill.  Get home safely and keep the shiny side up!

I took a short walk from the cabin at Urunga Heads Holiday Park down to the beach.

Fishermen and tourists (and me) were enjoying a quiet morning along Urunga Lagoon Footbridge boardwalk.  It’s a nice long path that extends over the Kalang and Bellinger Rivers all the way out to  Urunga Heads Beach.  There’s also an interpretive section that branches off to the lagoon.

It was nice, leisurely riding from Urunga up Pacific Highway to Coffs Harbor.  I turned inland toward Coramba.  Something about this bridge near Glenreagh caught my eye.

I stopped for fuel in Casino even though the tank still had more than ¼ remaining.  I need to get some sense of the distances I can go so I know if I need to buy a fuel can.

I also found a café with WiFi and was able to make a reservation at the YHA (hostel) in Byron Bay.  (Not quite enough time for updating the blog, though.  Sorry, folks.  I'll do my best to catch up.)

So far, today’s been pretty close to perfect -  great weather, pretty goad road conditions (some construction) and moderate truck traffic.  I hope my luck continues to hold.
