Even though the kayaks were picked up in the evening, we decided to walk for a couple more hours.
It was quite a surprise to see how heavy our backpacks were.
Due to the fact that we only camped in huts before, we never had to carry our tent and sleeping mat. After a while we got used to it tough and could enjoyed the scenery.
We were looking for a good spot to stay the night. Most people book campgrounds prior to their trip, but we thought it might be more fun and adventurous to find our very own place.
Passing many amazing bays and beaches (looking like an advert), we found a good site in the forest, just big enough to put our tent on.
We slept right between vines and branches and woke up with the sounds of birds. It was a peaceful spot, 5 minutes from the beach (close to Bark Bay). The next day we tramped for around 4 hours.
On our way we visited Cleopatra’s pool and as the temperature got warmer I went for a swim in a river. It was great and refreshing, just the swarm of sandflies began to annoy us.
These little monster seem to feel when someone wants to relax and give their best to spread hectic.
However, close to Anchorage Bay there is a beautiful sandstone arch, in which hundreds of people carved their names. Going back to 1930, this place is a piece of history. We truly loved our time here.
On our third day, we walked back to Marahau (from where we started). The distances were not too bad but we still arrived exhausted. We proudly granted ourselves a burger in the stylish cafe right at the start of the track and lay back.
That might be the best way to end a walk.
