For athletes, it’s the second gold medal. For musicians, it’s the difficult second album. For hikers, it’s the second day that is the biggest challenge. The faint sense of smugness that envelops you after the ease-yourself-into it first day evaporates on the second morning, when you realise you have to do it all over again and this time, it’s going to be much harder.
The second day of the 12 Apostles Lodge Walk is the most difficult of the entire four-day itinerary.
