We had to backtrack along the roads.

My friends decided to catch a bus because it was getting late. I continued and found that roads on the map were either blocked or private. It was a long detour.

I arrived, at length, on kwinana beach and walked the final 4.5km to Rockingham. My friends met me at the pub and we ate dinner, and gratefully rested.

  1. Some of the walk looks very beautiful. It looked as if you were trying to get through a ranbit oroof fence@ well done. It looks a lot of fun!
