November 10

We liked Robe, so rather than press on through another hot day, we decided to stay a second night. The small, picturesque town is pleasant to walk in, with large Norfolk Island pines along the shore and quaint old stone buildings housing most of the shops - a mixture of cafes, galleries and holiday cottages. It's difficult to get a good photo in these little streets, though, because they are so plugged with parked cars: the eye skims over them to the buildings, but the camera doesn't.

I spent the morning browsing while Michael caught up on some sketching. In the afternoon we took the path down through the dunes

to the beach for a swim,

winding up at this nice old stone pub for fish and chips in the evening.

Sunset along the shore in both directions ended the day very nicely.
