I was surprised how well I was feeling, no stiffness at all which was wonderful, usually day two can be a bit of an issue. It would appear all these years of exercise and going to the gym has worked for me!
We had the car on the trailer, packed up and were on our way by about 10.30am. We stopped at Port Augusta, and visited Wadlata Outback Centre which was quite interesting, giving a history of the area and the indigenous connection. We did a bit of food shopping and Kimbo bought a bargain pair of boots, who would have thought!
Just out of Port Augusta was our first point of decision; do we continue on Highway 1 or turn left and visit Eyre Peninsula, the coast won out.
We basically drove straight through Whyalla, it was not inviting at all. I don't think I’ve ever been here and saw no reason to do it now, it’s not known for its beauty.
We decided Cowell on Franklin Harbour which is the halfway point between Port Augusta and Port Lincoln would be our stop for the night and we pulled into the Foreshore Caravan Park about 6.15pm. A lovely park and the manageress was delightful, she couldn’t do enough for us. We hooked up to electricity which we hadn’t had the last couple of nights. The only difference really was having 240v lights. We went for a walk around town and along the breakwater and although it was a little chilly it was great to smell the sea air. Cowell of course is known for it’s oyster industry. It was very quiet and for November I thought there’d be more tourists about, happy that we don’t have to fight for space!
I sat back, read and listened to the sea while Kimbo had an early night. Maybe the big drive had taken it out of him.
