Bunkered back by the beach.

Weathering the storm.
Heavy rain and strong winds forecast for the next three or four days mean that our traveller isn't travelling anywhere. He's secured the campsite and has bunkered down in the new tent. Temperature is 12°, wind 30kph gusting to 50kph, and 30mm of rain has fallen in the 12 hours since since midnight with more on the way. According to the latest message:

"I bought supplies for a few days. Two loaves of bread, a pack of rice thins and two packets of mint slices. Have apples and condiments already. Tied down the bike with ropes and covered."

ABC news item, Heavy rain lashes north east.
