079. Day 84. Friday 5th June 2009. What a difference the Sun makes…
Interesting story about 1770. It has always been written that way but some pressure was put on council by Australia Post and a few other academic bodies to change the name to Seventeen Seventy and that is how it will be officially written.
Geez! Talk about autocrats. An unusual and catchy name, unlike any other in the world it has to change for conformity sake!
We are booked in to 1770 CP for two nights and may even take a third. The place is booked out being a long weekend (we had forgotten about long weekends) but a late cancellation has a site available. Regrettably it is not on the water nor does it have a concrete pad. It is on a corner and although I expected to be annoyed by cars it has been quiet. The day has been very warm and sunny, picture perfect for the inlet. A walk to the point and a scramble along the cliff path is exhilerating. As we arrive back at camp a hundred or so people are sitting on the beach, drinks in hand, fires lit and watching the sunset.
