Today was one of those very pretty but totally nondescript day, the scenery was "nice" but not breathtaking, the weather good but not a standout.However I am sure I will remember it clearly for some time. Today I walked the whole day on my own contemplating wether this would be my last walk with the Spunky Rooter. I don't know what or how it started but The Rooster and I had a huge argument this morning and for the next few kilometre we bitched and moaned at each, until in the end I stopped and told him to go on ahead. I would catch up. I had no intention of catching up, I needed time on my own. Well, as soon as he walked on my brain went into overdrive about if I wanted to keep walking with him or wether I would be better of walking on my own and blah,blah,blah. Well we both covered the the 15km in record time and I found the rooster comfortable sitting at the pub when I come down of the hill in Inveroran, by which timeI had forgotten what we had argues about. A drink and the promise of a nice dinner was all that was needed to patch up any made up issue. Now you may think that I am a bit of a drama queen, so I need to explain, Being on trail and with no other support system except each other, when that one person disagree or even questions your ideas or plan its catastrophic. You have no-one else to refer to. Our arguments tend to be few but when we do its high drama. :)
Anyway tonight we are wild camping in pristine little spot with a creek running by and the smell of cattle in the air.It is a perfect spot and onlyabout 200m from the pub. Couldn't ask for a better set up. After a very quick dip in the creek to wash both our bodies and our clothes it was back to the pub to eat.There are probably about 10 people camping here tonight so lots of stories and laughter.Its nice to met up with fellow hikers as The Rooster and I have been keeping to ourselves a bit.
