Time for a Rest! Ceduna to Streaky Bay

Another fine night and warm day. Off at 6.15am.
Fought a head wind most of the way, making cycling laborious.
Apart from a fruit salad and yogurt breakfast, we hadn't bought food for lunch or snacks as we expected to find food at Smoky Bay and Haslem, en route. Both settlements were well off the main road, so we decided to battle on and make do with a couple of bananas and sesame bars at our rest area stop overs.

Endless hectares of wheat and brown grazing grass along the way. No animals seen except for a few sheep.

Flies were soon as bad as ever and we donned our head nets.

Reached Streaky Bay by 3.00pm and decided to take a motel unit for a couple of days to relax. It's been 14 consecutive days of cycling and we were due for a rest day to recover. 

Did 109 kms today.
