Well now it’s 23rd. I got ahead of myself!
Lovely pic of family in London (minus Lucy)
I’ve tried to map our route. Www.trackmytour.com/ukVfj.
Another granite rock day. Up, up, up & down,down down!!
PLaces we visited included Minnipa, Pildappa Rock, tcharkulda Hill – don’t you just love the names.
Dec 24th – Christmas Eve
Because it was going to be hot we decided to go to the coast
Venus Bay was our first stop
Quite little fishing village – someone had caught a lot of fish and these guys knew it!
Then we decided to check out Streaky Bay where we are planning on going next. On the way we saw a sign to Murphy’s Haystacks. We weren’t going to do much up, up, up & down, down, down today because of the 40 degree heat. But guess what we did.
Then it was back to Wudinna and a meal in the CP restaurant.
25th Dec Christmas Day
Thank you everyone for your cards and gifts. Here we are on Christmas morning with our new golfing clothes and battery trolley. Thank you Else’s.
Isn’t FaceTime amazing. Spent some time talking to Tim & Chris and families. Great – miss you and love you all. (Same to all our friends)
Oh boy did the wind blow – gusting 52 K!!! Flew into the restaurant for a lovely evening with Sandy, Peter, Klaus and Tatiana..
we did the Gawler Ranges!!! 300K of gravel or less than gravel roads. The final 50K of corrugated gravel tracks was enough!!
Saw some amazing sites though
Approaching the “Organ pipes”. Most of the Gawler ranges are made up of these tubular granite formations. You feel like if you could pull them out of the ground you would have ready made pillars
Returned to the van – still felt like we were using a jack hammer about 2 hours later – declared we’d seen enough of the Gawler Ranges.
Not surprisingly we spent today chilling.
Then we remembered we hadn’t checked the screws. When caravanning you have to have “a screw loose” if you don’t check your screws. Don’t wait for sometning to fall off before checking.
just about to have roast beef off the Cadac.
