2nd Attempt: Day 34: Dog weather report, a running day and a nice place to camp. Thursday 29th April 2010, 43km, Steps 52154. (4/29/2010)

Left Clare this morning in showers but by the time we reached our breakfast spot the weather had clear so I thought it would be a good time to give D my doggy observation weather report. I have discovered a pattern forming in the weather since we have arrived in the South Australia it seems to rain at night or in the morning. Everyone keeps telling us that the state has been in drought and that the rain of the last few weeks has been a bit of a miracle well I know better. I don’t need fancy meteorological devices to predict the weather; my nose tells me that D, the rain genie is in town.

Other than the rain not much happened today and it was just one of those days spent running through undulating landscape to our final destination Yacka SA. Some of the hills of today made it a bit of “Hard Yakka” to get to Yacka but we finally made it and met a local, Ian who told us we could camp in the local park by the Yackamoorundie River. The park is being converted to a small caravan park by a group of enthusiastic local Yacka women who are trying to encourage people to stay in their town. The park is a beautiful spot next to the river and I am sure in the future it will be a welcoming place for the weary traveller to stay. 
As the park is still being developed there are toilets and cold showers but the power will not be connect till next week so the lady who manages the park allowed us to stay for free. On talking to the lady we discovered her daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer the same year as D and D was happy to hear she was doing well. It still surprises me that everyday, even when we are in the middle of a wheat belt in a tiny town we meet people who’s lives have been affect by this disease, I guess the universe is just trying to remind us everyday why we are really out here doing what we are doing.
Running with you soon.
