The bike to Tow Hill was so nice, if only because the road was flat. The road was gravel but it felt like a paved road because it was so smooth. Thee rise of Tow Hill in the distance was rather magestic, coming above the trees. The hike was something else. Rickety boards layed down with sand paper nailed to it. Not exactly the most safe, especially as it rose stepper (there were no railways!).
We played there for quite a while before taking a different back to the entrance where we'd kept our bikes. The path was almost entirely flat and I was so relieved. We'd thought about doing the blowhole first and then making our way up but I'm glad we did it the other way around.
The bike home was nice and we stopped at Moon Over Naikoon for some snacks. I'm not sure if it was because we were so hungry or because they were actually delicious but the chocolate chip cookies there were to die for. The rest of the day was spent reading and playing card games. We tried our hand at inventing our own game but ended up going back to our favourites: big two and spit (or is it speed?).
We spent the next day just relaxing and packing up. I took a shower on the back porch which was very liberating. After dinner, we had a ton of fun on the beach by ourselves taking pictures. It was one of the most spectacular sights of our trip. The reflection of the sky on the sand was so beautiful.
