Wednesday 24-3-10 Happy Anniversary Mick & Nick. Today we went grocery shopping & picked up our mail & then we clipped & bathed the dogs, we then went to the CES & the info centre & decided to go & see some sights of Ceduna. We went to Pinky Point Lookout where there are Silos for wheat, they also export Gypsum & Salt, we then went to the fish factory & to the harbour ay the slipway. We went to Shelly Beach (had to go there . When we got back to the van & took all the dogs for a walk along the Jetty just outside the van park. After that we went for a drink at the pub across the road & had a nice time. We shuffled hame & had a happy hour & did a bit of packing up. We are heading foe Streaky Bay tomorrow with a few days free camping. Wen to bed early , this time change is knocking us both about. Thursday 25-3-10 Off we go after checking the mail as Mick & Nick had sent us a book of photos of Maddy. It was in & the book was great., we headed
off for Streaky Bay, stopping Smoky Bay for a look & walking the jetty, another beautiful coastline. We reached Streaky Bay, a small Quaint town & headed for our free camp at Tractor Beach 578 in the SA Camp book 19 km south of Streaky Bay. We set up & took the girls & Jake for a walk on the beach. It was great , so peaceful, we nearly had the beach to ourselves. Den decided to put the Kayak in as the water was so calm. Den & Tony went for a long ride out to the rocks & Cheryl, Me & the dogs had a great time on the beach off their leads. We then had happy hour & had tea , watched TV & went to bed. Friday 26-3-10 Today after sleeping in from the time change w went the scenic route around The Westall Loop Drive , seeing High Cliff’s, The Granites, Smooth Pool, Yanerbie & then into town to get a few things, fill up with gas ($.80c & fuel $1.39) . We had fish & chips in the park & then headed for the vans. We then went down to the beach & Den
& Tony went out in the Kayak & Tony caught 2 big Rainbow Fish, Den lost the anchor that got caught on a rock, but they had a good time. Cheryl & I sat on the beach, the dogs ran free chasing Sea Gulls & having a good time. When the boys got back we went back to the vans & tidied up & they came over for drinks & we had a sausage & egg sizzle (yummy) . After tea I caught up on my diary & Den watched the footy. Go St George Illawarra. The temp would have been 30 deg today . Saturday 27-10-10 we woke up to a little drizzle that soon cleared to a nice day. We had an early lunch & then Den & Tony went for another fish with a big rock as an anchor, Tony caught another Rainbow fish & Den lost his hook & bait on with a big fish attached. Us girls had a fish on the beach but gave up as we were catching weed, we then went shell collecting. Jake kept rounding up Jessie if she went too far & our sweet little Annie ( anyone want to
buy a dog) First she tried to eat our bait out of the bucket, then she went to see some people up the beach & I could see the lady kicking her, so I went to investigate & she was trying to eat their chips. I got her away from that & then she tried to eat their bait, so the girls got put on their leads. The people left soon after (I wonder why). So they got let off again, next thing the whole 3 of them collected old fish heads & fish off the beach so we had to bury them. Next Annie had eaten a dead crab before I could catch her when next thing we saw her with a big fish head in her mouth & do you think she would let go . No way!!!! I must have spent 5 mins trying to get it out. Little by little I prized it out of her jaw, but she still managed to eat the last bit, big bones & all. Little buggar. I took her back to the van & fed her bread, which she just hated, ha, ha. We played 500 cards in the avo
& of course the boys won they had all these sayings which they both knew & we did not have a chance. Although we did work out a few signs, tap your heart & it was hearts & then I shook my head (no) & then I blew like a trumpet (trumps) = no trumps. Then we stuck our 3rd finger up to let each other know if we had the bird (joker). We pushed our diamond finger out if we had diamonds. It was a lot of fun. We then cooked up the fish & had salad & suds with it, the rainbow fish was delicious. It was getting cold so we went to the van & watched TV & had a shower. Sunday 28-3-10 We woke to steady rain & everything was getting damp. We packed up a few things & then we decided to play cards again this time the girls won Yeah!!!!! At lunch time the rain had cleared & Den & Tony went fishing & Den caught a King George Whiting & lost a squid & I caught up on my diary & photos & prepared tea & damper. The girls have had a lazy
day as they would not go out for a wee until the rain cleared. Annie went missing in the avo & it took ages to find her, she was behind the tractor eating something disgusting & during the night she was sick, serves herself right.
