Day 3. Sunday, but every day is a Sunday when you're on holidays.
I had 3 things to do. All holiday things!
1. Go to the mountain as there's a lookout. Easy.
TomTom doesn't know where either the mountain or lookout are. My other phone, the one that really is a phone, and the Cardo don't want to play together, so I can't use Google Maps. TomTom does think it knows where the National Park that contains the mountain and lookout are. And there are always lots of signs. How hard can it be then? Well, hard! TomTom trys to take me the back-way into the N'Park, and by back-way I mean straight into the scrub at the end of a road that was never built. Twice. So I kept riding & looking for signs (don't we all?). TomTom didn't like this. TomTom kept saying "turn around", "turn left & turn around" or, wait for it... "turn right then turn around", and there didn't even need to be a side road to turn into. As I got further away from what it thought was the N'Park it seemed to get more & more desperate. I was thinking about getting desperate as there were no signs either. So I kept riding. And ignoring TomTom.
Of to site number 2. A beach. Well, not just any beach. This beach. And I'd not been here before.the view to the beach
Back in the day, from the mid-'60s to probably the early-'80s, my wife's family owned a shack here and this was their beach. Weekends and school holidays were spent at the beach. All 100m of it, but it was all theirs. Now that is something to be a bit envious about.THE beach
As I wasn't dressed for swimming, it was now time to find that lookout! I'll just use google maps with no audio, like I should have the first time. And as it was still morning, the sun was mostly behind me so out of my eyes and shining onto the phone screen.
I found it. TomTom had no idea, no #insert many swearwords here# idea.
And who doesn't like a ride up a (small) mountain, even at the speed limit.road to Fraser park Lookout, Mt Archerview & road
