Outside our window a cockerel who cannot tell the time started up at 3.00 am waking us, only for a short few moments though until a far more respectable 7.30 am arrived.
Once on our way we crossed the river on a sort of footbridge then it was cycle track for virtually all of today.
It was around 25 km before the final stamp booth of the Senate Cycle Track, this also serves as the eleventh stamp on the Nakdonggang River section. This section of river will take us all the way to Busan in 369 km of riding. Just for fun we are going to get the twelfth and final stamp of that cycle path, it needs an extra 65 km of cycling each way though.
We did meet our second pair of Europeans, two guys from France. We chatted a while, they were doing the Four Rivers in eleven days (including getting from and back to France) so needed to cover bigger distances every day.
Over the river and then we continued upstream on some very nice cycle track.
Here there were a lot of farmers drying their rice crops on the track / road as the harvest season was in full swing.
Several river crossings later we began to look for somewhere to stay for the night, there is a lack of motels in this very rural area so when we found the Rock Carved Forest Park with the wooden platforms nestling among the boxwood trees we halted and camped here. Being a little unsure as to if you can camp here we cooked and ate the evening meal before putting up the tent.
After the longer day sleep came quickly…….
