I'm not sure how far exactly we biked. Probably somewhere around 30 kilometers. The ride was beautiful.
The next part of the day was not so pretty. At this point, we'd probably biked a total of four hours in two days. And that's a total of four hours for the last....oh....3 years? So my bum wasn't quite ready for the ride. And Sam had really just learned how to bike that year. So. 24km of hilly road from Tlell to Port Clements wasn't exactly fun. Or easy. Someone told us it would take us about an hour to bike there. Add two hours and a lot of walking and swearing and you'll an idea of what it was like. The REAL trooper in all this was Silan. She biked ahead of us with both her stuff and mine just to make it to the grocery store so we could have some food for dinner. That's a real friend right there!
We stayed over at Sunset which was adorable. It was our first real fire and we were seriously stoked. And! I can't forget, it was my first exposure to spaghetti-o's, probably one of my favourite foods on the trip. Oh funny story. We started the fire in the pit near our site before we decided to move under the gazebo. Let's just say I thought the best way to start another fire would be to run with a burning log to the other fire pit. Yes. That's the best way.
