We had an early start this morning, so that meant we got up at 6:30am, tents down and packed by 7:30am , before leaving for Adelaide at 8:30am. The first 30 minutes of the trip was our quiet time, where pilgrims and leaders could catch up on some much needed shut-eye, followed by some exhilarating bus aerobics to get the blood pumping round the body. We then briefly stopped at Stawell, famous for being one of the biggest producers of gold in Victoria, and were able to stretch our legs. After passing the South Australian border, much of the landscape was very flat with the occasional hill, and we split into our small groups to go through our pilgrims journal and reflect on the first two days of our journey. Stopped for lunch next to a roadhouse before continuing our journey east. The event of the day, however, was when our coach ran out of petrol about an hour away from Adelaide and we had to wait an hour and a half before being able to keep going. Finally arriving at our destination in Adelaide, we quickly set up our tents in the dark (again), before a very late, yet delicious dinner prepared by our cook, Geoff. So another early start tomorrow on our way to Port Augustus, with a stop off at the cultural centre to learn more about the Indigenous way of life.
