Time to leave Spear Creek. Definitely somewhere to return to. Move on to Cowell.
Take a walk to the local boat ramp. Greeted by a massive gull. Apparently a Pacific Gull – 63cm’s. Not so small
Time to take a rest.
Vsit to a Qnandong farm – well actually Heather’s house. Such a lovely lady in her 80’s. She asked what we wanted – just jam or coffee and scones. As we made our coffee she whipped the cream. We then carried the tray up to her newly built little lookout. Sooooooo sweet.
She suggested we went to Point Gibbon then showed us pictures of her sons rolling down the dunes about 40 years ago!! We had strict instructions to stay on the road and not drive on the sand – yes Mum!!!! Also told we must come back and she’ll have some satsuma plums for us. ( Hopefully she will appreciate the mango freezer jam we’ll take for her)
Yes I tried sliding and rolling down the dunes. (Press on the video link). What a great experience without costing a cent (penny)
chill out day again. Ended with the most delicious beef roast on the Cadac again. No pics cause it smelt too good to wait. Lovely to chat with Helen, Roger, Pat, Brian & Kay. Having a Tuesday tennis booze up.
weather warm – soak in pool.
Visit to Cleve. First stop – “Conversations” restaurant at Elbow Hill. You have to visit if you’re in the area. They had a string Christmas tree with notes from any visitors in Dec. Sounds odd but great reading. French dressing on salad the best we’ve ever had.
Ollie and Mr GP at Yeldulknie Weir. Having walked up to weir and then back down we realised it was 41 degrees!!! No wonder we felt warm!!!
Mr GP met a friend. These collie dog metal statues are all over Cleve. Love to know more about them but Google search and brochures don’t explain. If anyone knows more about them please let us know.
Mr GP got really excited as we approached Highway Lookout. What a view over The Eyre Peninsula towards Arno Bay
Oops take a look at the sky! This gravel road is not transversable in wet weather!!! Still 30K to go!!!!
Back at the caravan park at Cowell – the heavens opened. Glorious rain for this drought affected area of SA. And it waited till we were safe in our caravan cocoon.
