I'm up early today (for me) in order to get to Kelso Depot before it closes, in the hope that they sell batteries, which I need.

It was cold again overnight, but no ice in the water bottles this morning. I first woke up at 6h, but managed to fall back asleep until after 8h.

I'm glad to see the sunshine again. The sun makes the tent almost warm inside, but I'm still wearing my hat, scarf, winter coat and long underwear at this early hour.
