Week 7 | Day 46 – Wednesday 13th November 2013
My alarm sounds again, this time not quite so early due to our close proximity to The Tip. Although it’s still dark, a distinctive lack of stars in the sky tells me it is once again overcast. Hope of a sunrise over The Tip fades as I nestle into the swag and fall back to sleep.
Not wanting to waste the morning Rah and I rise as soon as it is light enough to see where we’re walking, and head west along the empty beach toward a rocky point in the distance. The sunlight filtering through the gapless rain clouds casts a calming blue hue as far as the eye can see. We’re thankful for the beautifully rounded light, which relieves our senses from the otherwise vibrant and overstimulating landscape. With it comes cooler temperatures that seem to slow us down and really relax our nerves.
