Tuesday 21 February
It had been quite some time since I had walked the Dave's Creek Circuit. Unfortunately, the only Gaiter Girls available were Janice and me. Storms had bypassed us the previous couple of evenings, but not so in the hinterland. It was cool with low clouds, as we arrived at Lamington National Park. Pleasant for walking but the leeches were abundant and looking for free rides! At our lunch stop, I discovered one on my naval and another just below my hip. I had brushed many others off.
