Day 6: Basin Head to Rollo Bay Lookout (Final Walking Day).
Distance Walked: 21.64 km.
Terrain: Several rolling hills.
Scenery: Stunning vistas, easy roadside walking, quiet dirt lanes, beautiful beaches, colourful fields.
Accommodations: Siren’s Beach Motel.
Rich is delighted to see his name in print.
This lookout point just passed Rollo Bay (across from Myriad View Distillery) is our final stop.
We made it! We officially completed 143.36 km on The Island Walk in 6 days. Our shortest distance day was 12.36 km, our longest was 38.08 km, making our average day 23.92.
This is such a flexible walk with so many options it could be easily enjoyed in as many km that work for you. (Sandy is currently helping one of their upcoming guests who are planning to walk 10 km per day.)
To celebrate our completed walk, Richard and I joined Sirus Beach Motel owners, Sandy and Liz, for dinner at nearby Red Neil’s.

Tomorrow, Richard and I are off to Cape Breton with long time friends. I am officially beginning my full blogging break until early June. While I’m away, I will pop up some pics on Instagram (Retirement Reflections). See you then!
