線路は続くよどこまでも(re:日本一周#7)

こんばんは。今日はクリスマスですね。

いつも通りバイトに入っているヨコイシですが、クリスマスのバイトは嫌いじゃないです。

家族連れが自分たちの出す料理や飲み物で笑顔になっているのを見ると、本当に幸せな気持ちになれます。そんなヨコイシの2016年8月7日の旅の様子をブログで更新します。

7日目の道のり

7日目は志原海岸という海岸からスタート

昨日の夜は波の音を聞きながら野宿

高校生がはしゃいでたり、漁船の光が遠くに見えたり、少しノスタルジーに浸りながら寝てました。(ちなみに夜の海に1人で野宿は割と怖かった)

そんな今日はみかんで有名な有田を目指して走ります。和歌山も終盤。

走り出して、すぐ山道へ。

まぁでもそんなに大きい峠があるわけではなく、細かいアップダウンが続くって感じだったから、比較的楽に突破して、リゾート地白浜町へ突入

まだ朝の涼しさもあって海風の気持ちよさをダイレクトに感じながら走る

白浜町を朝のうちに抜けると、そのまま田辺市へ。田辺市に入ると街並みは一変して都会へと変わる。都会に変わると山道は少なくなる代わりに、照り返しの猛暑が待っていた。

ただでさえ今日の気温は旅に出てから一番の猛暑だったから、まぁきつい。

どのくらいきついかっていうと、ムワっとした空気が口の周りを塞いで、息が苦しくなるような感覚。流石にぶっ倒れたら旅もクソもないので、こまめに休憩を入れながらペースを落として走る。

そんな休憩中のコンビニで、この旅初めてのチャリダー(自転車で旅する人の総称)仲間に出会った

俺よりふた回りくらいは離れてるおじさんだったけど、むしろふたまわり離れてるのにこの猛暑の中同じように自転車を漕いでるってところに本気で尊敬した。世界遺産を巡りながら旅しているらしい。こないだは高野山に行ったらしいけど、「高野山ってクソほど山だよ?!このおっさんまじすげぇ…」ってなった笑

そんなチャリダー同士が出会うと、おきまりの情報交換が始まる。「ここは山道がきつい」とか「ここは補給があんまりない」とか色々。

ライダーさんとも情報交換することがあるけど、ライダーは山を「山」って思ってることが少ないから齟齬が生まれる。例えば「ここは大した山道じゃないよー」って言ってるけど、実はめっちゃ山道やん!みたいなやつが。

その分チャリダーの情報は正確だから貴重なのだ。ってことでたっぷり情報交換をしてお別れ。田辺市を後にする。

田辺市を抜けると、みなべ町→印南町となるんだけど、ここは山道に戻る代わりに景色が絶景だった。

海沿いを走り抜ける線路。

どこまで行くんだろ。

海の青と空の青の境界線がわからないくらいには青が濃かった。

そんな海が見える絶景の道を進む。

みなべ町は梅の生産量が日本一位らしくて、あちこちに紀州南高梅の文字があった。

こうやって日本中の名産品も気づけば知っていくのが旅のいいところなのかも…

勉強もしながら走り続けて、気づけばお昼時、御坊市に入る。この街は更に都会で、いよいよ大阪に近づいて来たなぁって思いながらも暑さのピークにやられた。たまらずガストに逃げ込んで昼ごはんついでに休憩してからは、再びの山道ゾーン。日高→由良→広川→湯浅と峠の連続をフラフラ攻略しながら町を抜けて、いよいよ今日の目的地の有田町の隣、有田川町に近づく。

ここ有田川もみかんの栽培で有名で、道の駅の後ろは思いっきりみかん畑だった

さぁ、今日の野宿先の道の駅に3時頃に着いてしまったヨコイシにはどうしてもやり残したことがあった。

「温泉に入りたい…」

そう、今日は猛暑と峠で死ぬほど汗をかいていたのだ。汗を流さないで寝ると、夜にベタついて本気で眠れない。温泉に入ると気持ちよく熟睡出来るのだ。

この近くには5キロ先に温泉があった。

しかし、山の上。

温泉に行くために山を5キロ登るのもなかなかきついけど、今回は絶対に温泉に入りたくて、結局温泉に向かい始めた、、

道中はそれはもう普通に山道だった。

汗を流すために汗をかくのもなんか不毛だったけど、素敵な景色にも出会った

夏空の映える清流を渡って、

ヒグラシの声を聞きながらやっと温泉に辿り着いた。

写真は公式からの引用だよ

この温泉まじで気持ちよかった

山の上にあるからあたりを見渡せて、赤とんぼが飛んで来て、とにかく最高に気持ちよかった

歴代入った温泉ランキングでもめっちゃ上位に位置するレベル。

かなや明恵峡温泉って言うんだけど本当にオススメ。

そんな温泉でのんびりした後は、道の駅に戻って、裏手のみかん畑のあたりで就寝。

次回はいよいよ大阪に入るらしい…

走行距離 109キロ

和歌山県白浜町→和歌山県有田川町

総走行距離 876キロ

今日も見ていただきありがとうございます。
