I woke this morning feeling a little bit less pain, from now on it has to go up again! I had a shower, and am now sitting nice and warm in my bed, still weak, but the flu feeling is less. At least I’ll be able to update today from last Wednesday.
Just again feeling very sorry for missing out a lowish wind day today. It will be headwinds around 15-20 kn all week long, and today is “only” 10-15kn, and even less in the afternoon. There are half days with little under 15kn, but the next leg is a 60km stint to Port Gregory. No other landings. So maybe on Wednesday I’ll be fit enough to clench my teeth into the 60 km headwind leg after this horrible weakening flu period is fully over.
I felt like I had to go for a town walk today, to check if I am feeling strong enough to possibly get going again tomorrow. The forecast didn’t look too bad.
I noticed I was still a bit weak, but with some frequent sit downs and another great lunch at the Black Rock Café (thanks, John!!!) I was happy to stay out almost all day.
I even felt like shopping around a bit for some sexy dresses – I need a few more airy dresses in this climate! Especially when there is a “special someone” you like to look nice for…
And I found one – “The Ultimate Black Dress” by Sacha Drake! Sinful expensive (not sponsored…), plus the matching belt, but as it was kind of a changeable dress where you can drape the stretchy top in more than 20 styles, it is really well worth the money!
Don’t tell me women go shopping when they need to cheer themselves up a bit…I felt like I deserved a bit of self-pampering, even after the great overall treatment here in Kalbarri!
Back at Ken’s home, he has ordered some take-away noodles with prawns for the two of us. Thanks, Ken! I would have loved to share a bit more of your company, but being sick I was mostly happy by myself. Just hope I didn’t pass the virus on to you…
