2nd Attempt: Day 123. Tropic of Capricorn. Tuesday 27th July 2010, 57.6km, Steps  (7/27/2010)


We left Lyndon River just as the sun was starting to rise and headed north on the North West Coastal Highway, in the cool of the morning. As the sun rose the day warmed quickly and when we stopped for breakfast the temperature had risen to 30 degrees. During breakfast D told me we were at the Tropical Capricorn, for a moment I was a tad confused the name sounded so familiar and I thought hadn’t I been here before, but that was impossible? How could I have been here before? I’ve not been in WA before. As I stood looking at D with a very confused expression on my face she informed me that I had been across the Tropic of Capricorn before but in Queensland on the 1st attempt/half around Australia. I looked at her and asked how can a place be in two different locations? It just didn’t make sense. D than gave me a brief geography lesson and explained that the Tropic of Capricorn was a latitudinal line that circumnavigates the planet and on our journey we cross it twice once here in WA and again in Rockhampton in Queensland.
I remember that day last year in Queensland when we crossed the Tropic of Capricorn because when we crossed it over there the weather got hotter and it appears to me that the same thing is happening over this side of the country. I thought that maybe this Tropic of Capricorn line was a line that indicated that the weather was now hot or was I just imagining things. As the day wore on I realized I wasn’t imagining it, it did start to get hot, and so I am officially renaming the Tropic of Capricorn to “Maggie’s Hotline”. 
Running with you soon.
