Some places we've been and some places we're going.


Despite the forecast of very strong winds starting at 12:00, the night was reasonable with only normal rain, and the morning looked lovely so we took the opportunity to look around Lincoln for a while. We went to the Lookout and cruised around some of the streets looking at the “Tuna Mansions”. We saw the statue of Makybe Diva on the foreshore yesterday. Neither of us had any inclination to go Tuna feeding or swimming in a cage beside sharks and with the awful weather forecast on our minds we decided to head for home and just see how far we got before fatigue set in. We thought Tumby Bay was a nice little place and spent some time in the Bakery there but when we left we could see the dark clouds forming behind us and we could see bands of rain radiating from them. Before we reached Whyalla the rain hit us and by Port August although the temperature was still 28 deg. the wind was really buffeting the car. By “The Tin Man” near Port Pirie it was only 12 deg. black sky, strong gusty wind and heavy rain. Driving was difficult because the big trucks not only caused blinding sprays of water but also added their draught to the wind gusts. We felt sorry for all the campers heading off up the road in such foul weather while we would soon be in a nice, solid house where we could shut the doors and leave the weather outside!

The holiday is over, the unpacking begins …………….tomorrow.

  1. Hi, not so grey nomads, I’ve certainly enjoyed your trip — probably as much as you have. It certainly made us feel a bit stick in the mud vegetating here in Moore Park Beach. While you were spinning along the West Coast we have had the excitement of a trip to the barber, consultations about hearing aids and the thrill of watching the weeds grow. Thank you for your reports and photos. We really enjoyed them.
    All the best, Fred & Rhonda

  2. Glad you enjoyed, “making tracks with us”. Now it’s time to go through the photos and see what I can do with them. How many pages can you have in an affordable Photobook????

  3. Enjoyed your adventures. I’ll miss my daily fix of your blog. Thanks for that. Glad you got home safe and sound.

  4. Bravo Sue and Alex – well done! Thanks for taking us ‘along for the ride’ via your fantastic blogs and pics. Really enjoyed them.

  5. So pleased you are home. Tail wind all the way by the sounds of it. What an amazing time you have had, congratulations!

    • Tail wind???? Very occasionally. It’s nice to be home BUT it would also be nice to be somewhere like Kununurra was when we were there, shorts on everyday, no wind or rain. Now it’s back to “real life”.
