Monday 26 February. Loch Sport. Rest Day.

Weather today was bright and sunny all day with a strong SE wind off the sea keeping temperatures down to 25C.

Today was another recovery day. My hosts Hanna and Max took me round to meet Yvonne and Ken who run Manley's Caf? in Loch Sport and who are coming round to dinner later in the day.

I took a few pictures of the multi coloured parrots which make use of the Bird Feeder at Hanna's B&B.

Later Hanna and Max took me round to another friend who has a grand house with a high balcony view across Lake Victoria to the distant Alps.

In the afternoon I visited 90 mile beach again and took a mile walk along it. I decided not to go for the other 89. Later I cycled round looking for Kangaroos. I found plenty by returning to the Golf Course on the edge of town. In one area I counted 16. I wonder if they understand "Fore"

In the evening I was invited by Hanna and Max to a slap up meal to prepare me for tomorrows ride. We were joined by Yvonne and Ken.

One special moment was after sunset when I Looked out the window during dinner and 6 Kangaroos hopped by up the road no doubt looking for pastures in town. 2 of them stopped briefly sitting on their haunches and looked up at the window. Not something I can recall during any previous meal anywhere!!

11 miles for the day and 160ft of climb.
