Conveniently, the Great walk to Bivouac Bay starts from Fortescue Bay, and goes north towards Tasman Arch! Yay! - this meant that I would eventually meet Jon, on his way south..and so I did.. eventually. I must admit it took me a LOT longer to cover the 5k than I was expecting, but I can at least partially blame the track which was pretty rough underfoot. There were also a few steep pinches, of course not as steep or long as the hour long hill Jon had own his journey on his way south, but steep enough to reduce me to walking anyway.
I was on my way back from Bivouac Bay when Jon caught up with me, so we ran the rest together which was nice.
Arriving back at Fortescue Bay beach was great, because after Jon's long run, and my two shorter runs we were both exhausted.
I must admit that I wasn't wowed by Bivouac Bay, the coastline was nice but the destination wasn't all that different from the other bays I passed along the way. In fact Canoe Bay, about half way to Bivouac Bay was a nicer destination as it had nice sunny spots to enjoy the views, and a shipwreck to look at. Still it was good to tick off my 2nd Great Walk for the day.
