There is only one word to describe the weather as we made our way from Fowlers Bay to Streaky Bay – horrendous! The wind through the night had not dissipated in the morning; in fact it got a whole lot worse. We were buffeted continuously.
Having used up our fresh produce in order to clear the quarantine station we stopped briefly in Ceduna to purchase a fresh supply, to refuel and to give the car and van a quick wash down after all the dust of the previous week. From there it was a 105km drive along the Flinders Highway to Streaky Bay as the wind swirled all around us.
Checking in to the Foreshore Caravan Park we managed to set up quickly before the rain arrived and the wind strength grew. The Bay was extremely grey looking and very choppy; by mid afternoon the wind had become an absolute hoolie so we were very pleased to have arrived safely.
