Hi travel Followers.

Here is the latest on our Australian travel adventures.

We now find ourselves set up at Port Lincoln, South Australia on the bottom of the Eyre Peninsular. After leaving Ceduna we stopped off for a night or two at each of Streaky Bay, Venus Bay, Elliston, Coffin Bay and now Port Lincoln. All of these little towns have caravan parks with excellent bay views, but because of this they can be a bit breezy when the wind comes up.

Streaky Bay and Venus Bay were our favourites simply because of the coastal walks, drives and views of the Great Australian Bight and cliffs etc. Lyn particularly liked Venus Bay because she came across a friendly Sea Lion on the Jetty and she caught a pretty good sized Flathead off the Jetty which I of course had to fillet and then with some light flouring and pan frying went down very well at dinner. Mmmmm. Lyn fed the fish skeleton to the local flock of Pelicans. You should have seen the commotion with one Pelican positioning himself perfectly for the fish to go straight the chute. See photo.

We also visited places like the Whistling Rocks, the blow holes and Murphy's Haystacks which is a interesting shaped granite outcrop in the middle of rolling wheat fields.

Many of these little towns don't have a great deal to do as a destination other than fishing and the views, but they are great places to just sit back and relax from the travel. Because of this we have slowed our pace and the distances we are travelling between stops considerably so that we are only doing between 50 and 100kms.

Hope you like the photos.
