Heading off this morning to catch up With Tone and boys after they had to head closer to Adelaide to collect his car yesterday.
A really strong northerly wind (33-40 km p/h) pushed the caravan and car around like we were on rough sea's.
Port Vincent and Port Julia are both very effected by the northerly winds. They both have big bays and the tide receeeds a very long way.
We planned to stop around the top end at Port wakefield or Parham for our last squid and crab. The tides had different ideas. Again huge receding tides saw the effort not worth the trouble.
So we bid farewell to the York Peninsula.
We loved all the areas we visited and wishes we had more time to stay longer The drive around Adelaide proved to be very long. You tend to forget what it is like to be in the city. (well the outskirts)
The 35 odd km trip through industrial, road works, suburbs, shopping centres, traffic lights more industrial, I'm sure you get the drift took about an hour.
The sprawl of new suburbs in the greater Adelaide area is astounding. Bit like Ipswich to Brisbane continuous.
Then you come to the beach suburbs like Aldinga Beach where Tone and the boys are staying in the McLaren Vale. Gorgeous sandy white beaches and blue water amongst the backdrop of rolling golden hills and grapes and olive trees.
Australia we have it all!
Couldn't resist a case of red and white with a couple of litres of Tawny Port.
Took a photo opportunity at the sinking site of the HMAS Hobart. Again beach, rolling hills and Norfolk Pines - beautiful
We have had a few drops of rain making the drive cool, the photos however will not be as spectacular as we see it.
Rapid Bay is beautiful. (blah blah blah I know - really you have to be here!)
