Day 98. We drove north up the Tod Highway from Coffin Bay on the inland road to small grain town of Cummin. We then turned east through beautiful rolling hills of wheat, barley and lupin crops to descend to the coast at Tumby Bay, a pretty small coastal village with a long jetty, pub and Norfolk Island pines. We walked along the beach, the colours of the clear water just amazing. We continued north along the Lincoln Highway to Cowell where we checked into the shady Foreshore CP on lunchtime. Cowell is a lovely heritage village first settled in 1853 with lots of old restored stone buildings including a long jetty, post office, banks, institute, police station, pubs and churches. Giant Norfolk Island pines tower above the streets. The district produces wheat, barley, oats, wool, sheep meat, beef, oysters, fish and jade. On the jetty we purchased fresh local oysters grown at nearby Lucky Bay which we oven baked in garlic butter and parmisan breadcrumbs to have with home made vegetable soup for our Sunday dinner. Spent time relaxing in our van and a drink at the local Franklin Harbour Hotel on dusk, a great way to end our day. Drove 300km, warm 28 degrees, very windy, a change is coming!
