Tirebolu – Ordu (92km)

Day 117: Tirebolu – Ordu (92km) – Distance travelled so far 6,737 km “Living the Black Sea Dream and The Beautiful Ordu”

We feel good after our nights camp, although raking the sand before setting down the floor of the tent would have been a good idea (black sea sand is harsh!!). We live and learn……Ok, not to whinge, we have got something very noble on our sides……ie, Coastal roads rule!!!!! They are as flat as a plate and with the sea-side constantly to your ride hand side, you really cannot really ask for much more.

Leaving our camp-spot by the beach (about 8am)
