Morrine Rock

- A very easy little stage after a couple of tuff but highly interesting
"hot weather stages", especially the intense nature experience of tenting
and running my way from Coolgardie to Yellowdine Roadhouse.

During the run today the right Achilles seemed to be a little bit below
usual strength so obviously the choose was to enjoy an easy stage and
plenty of rest and sleep after the finish.

- But not more sleep than to have a talk with the host of the old Moorine
Rock hotel where I am staying until early tomorrow.

A beautiful old hotel filled w. the ambience of years and travellers gone
As it turned out the friendly host had plenty of time for a talk and had
seen many a long distance traveller walk, bike - or indeed - run through
the small village :-)

We had a good talk of culture and nature in Europe, Siberia, Japan, and
Australia of course; as well as city and rural life. And found out that a
Dane had once worked in the hotel.

- A nice break from the run :-)
