That night we camped at a beautiful beach near the town of Sakitsu. The clear night brought cold temperatures as the mercury dipped to around 0. While we were paddling we were not especially cold, but the moment we stopped we quickly became frozen. The beach was littered with driftwood, which came in handy to build a bonfire. On this fire we roasted dried rice cakes (mochi) until they were brown and swollen. A delicious meal followed and we quickly gobbled down like a couple of wild boars in a vegetable garden.
That night due to a slow leak in my thermarest, I froze and woke up not feeling especially fresh.
