The rain fell all night and has been doing so for the last few days as NSW is gripped in severe storms…
we in O’Connor (15 minutes out of Canberra) had consistent and persistent heavy drizzle…
Time to head out towards Victoria but the weather did not look any brighter than yesterday. We have ridden in rain but never this relentless drizzle which resembles heavy rain when travelling on a motorcycle. Wet weather gear over our normal riding gear makes you feel like Michelan Man to say the least but better to be dry than wet ….
Distance to travel to Cann River is 296kms but with wind and rain it feels a lot longer than that. Needless to say you need to keep your eyes peeled and your senses alert !!
We stopped a couple of times as I was cold and circulation was very poor but oh did I get spectacular pics !!!! Cold and frozen fingers did not stop me 🤩 & taking pictures when it’s sunny is one thing but when it’s rainy the beauty is very very different.
We took a different route this time and rode with hills on either side of the highway. The clouds hung low and you could barely see the top of the hills but the views were no less spectacular…. my visor kept fogging up while the rain poured over it … I had to lift it a crack to stop the fogging so ended up with a very cold wet nose 😄
Five hours later we arrived at this little town called Cann River
Cann River is a town in the East Gippsland region of Victoria in Australia. The town is located on the Cann River at the junction of the Princes Highway and the Monaro Highway, in the Shire of East Gippsland. At the 2016 census, Cann River had a population of 194 people.
Here to stay the night before the home stretch tomorrow 🏍
