Orienteering 2:00:04  14.56 km (8:15 / km) +112m 7:56 / km
Out along the beach to do some orienteering on a map Conor sent on.
Bit of a trek out, hopped off the beach and into the forest to follow the trail and eventually figure out where I was. The forest track was pretty much gone, and completely overgrown, so fought through bush for a couple km to the start, but the track eventually came good. Don’t think I would have known where I was except they had the tracks numbered on the map which was appreciated.
Orienteering went alright. Really detailed, forested sand dunes, much nicer forest up this end so it was lovely orienteering. No compass though, and with so much going on on the ground it sure felt like compass-heavy terrain. Took my time and just focussed on trying to read as much detail as possible.
Not easy to follow the mapping at times because there were so many form lines, but there was even more happening on the ground, so it was fairly intense.
Got them all I think, but called it at #19 because it was a (relatively) easy access point back to the beach.
And slog back to the car.
Nice day for it, not too hot, enjoyed it after the warm up, and went for a short dip in the sea after.
