Day Five – Mt Remarkable

Would you believe it – another morning of wind and rain! But this time it was pretty brief and after our sleep in (sort of) we packed up camp, had a basic breakfast and proceeded to leave the city of churches in our wake.

A fairly short drive today (270 km) but we had a few stops for fuel and booze, plus a bit of a brake issue for Grandad and Pia that was spotted by a good Samaritan and fixed in a few minutes. It was good to see the Spencer Gulf in the distance as we drove along the highway as the water is one thing we miss now living in Canberra. Lake B-G in no way compares to a beach and the seas, unfortunately.

Tonight we are camping at Mt Remarkable NP. It is a great spot although the booking system is a pain in the coight.

Nathan and I went out to get firewood earlier and found some on the train line. On the way back we spotted a few emus, kangaroos and joeys, and an echidna. Nathan got some great shots on Mum's camera. Collecting firewood remains

Nathan spotted this fella from around 70 metres away!
one of my favourite chores while camping. Everything is relaxed and you know that the result is going to be a ripper fire!

The night was good again, with a fire-cooked meal and a few games. Some very tired adults saw us to bed early, ready for the 470 km trip to Coffin Bay NP for a few nights.
