2nd Attempt: Day 60: No head wind, meat pies, installation art and making up kms. Tuesday 25th May 2010, 60.2km, Steps 68040. (5/25/2010)

Thank the heavens, the weather gods and the universe that this morning there was no head wind and D and I did a great solid 10kms before breakfast. Our breakfast spot was one of the many scenic lookouts that have spectacular vistas of the Great Australian Bight and dot the road throughout the Nullarbor National Park. As the weather was fine D decided that it was a great opportunity for a photo shot, we did get one yesterday but it was such a miserable day that the pics didn’t really turn as you couldn’t really see anything. After the photo shoot I looked around at the view and I now know why this part of the Australian coast line is called the Great Australian Bight, with its huge cliff face that jumps up out of the sea it looks like a giant has taken a big bite out of an enormous Aussie Meat Pie. Yummy meat pie, I wonder when the next store is as now I really would like a hot pie.

After the tourist shoot we started running down the road and I was looking around and discovered that the Nullarbor has a hidden museum. It contains a brilliant display which exhibits the history of beer can technology right back to the tin can. There is literally thousands of these cans on the side of the road and I think this exhibition has been uniquely curated by someone strongly influences by installation art. I do recommend a visitation but there is no need to hurry as its open until the end of the next millennium. I talked to D about the display and she said Maggie you silly dog that’s litter and she said in a sad tone that unfortunately there is more rubbish out here than when she walked across the Nullarbor in 2003. I didn’t understand this, why would people place rubbish out here? Us dogs are a lot cleaner than you humans is all I can say.
Due to the weather conditions of the last two days D was under her scheduled kilometres and as the weather was better today D pushed on until she had reached 60kms which helped make up some lost kms, we found a nice big gravel pit to set up camp just before more rain started to full.
Running with you soon.
