Day 55

Oct 25 day 55 Feilding to Palmerston North


Slept in a bit because I wanted a big breakfast before leaving and the Spring cafe did not open until 8:00. Enjoying what luxury I can get for now as the coming days (after today) will include big miles and stealth camping. The walk over to Palmerston North was straightforward on very straight roads. It was Sunday so traffic was thinner than usual and lots of bicycles out. The trail skirts the outside of Palmerston, running down a river path popular today as it was finally warm and sunny. Everyone wanted a piece of that. Wound my way to the campground down near the river which is flowing strong from recent rain. Got set up, headed to pak’n save to resupply, the Bivouac to replace my camelback (got one on sale), then the patio at Brewers Apprentice where a mass of people were having sunshine pints. Good quiet day.
