It seemed the whole world wanted to care for us: within that first hour on Flinders I’d learned about the yoga retreat I could join, regular holiday makers befriended us letting us know the local cafe had just re-opened and we’d set up camp in a sheltered glade in the Killiecrankie campsite.
The weather gods that had greatly favoured the first big week of our expedition, providing both challenging and benign conditions, chose to throw gales our way. The enforced four days at Killiecrankie proved to be a joy… yoga, exploration, good food, music, new friends, long beach walks, a museum visit and well-earned rest.
