Today we follwed the other tri-travel athletes into town in our rental “bus” and did an open water swim of about 30 minutes. Luke Bell, a top pro Australian athlete was there. After the swim Dad and I found a good breakfast place in the town of Bussleton and then headed to the expo. Only the two official exhibitors were set up — the rest will be ready Thursday.
When we got back to the hotel, I decided to hire (that is “rent” in US English) a bike… They have single speed beach cruisers only, and it turned out to be a tough ride when riding into the strong wind off the water! There is a 25-30k paved path along the beach that goes south of our resort, as well as north past the downtown section of Busstleton, so I rode all of that and took the following pictures:
Later we headed back into town and had dinner at Vasse. I had a somewhat strange but good risotto with pumpkin, spinach, corn, peas, feta, and fennel.
