It was such a lovely, sunny day we decided to head south to Victor Harbor, about an hour from home. Because of Covid19 restrictions the Whale Watch Centre wasn’t posting updates of sightings which was disappointing.

Our first stop was at Horseshoe Bay.
Anchors retrieved from the bay
Remains of old structure built using local rocks
Next stop, Basham’s Beach
Basham’s is a popular surfing spot
No surfers would want to end up here
Limestone in the making?
Vegetation on the dunes is healthy
Victor Harbor for a lovely lunch at a pub. The Seagulls took any opportunity to grab a snack if plates were left unattended.

Southern Right Whales have made a come-back since Whaling days.
No dogs allowed so no Granite Island for us.

Wright Island in Encounter Bay
Looking south from the lower slopes of The Bluff
We’ll leave the climb to the top of The Bluff for another day.
Petrel Cove, I’ve never been here before and I loved it though I wouldn’t want to be here on a hot Summer’s day, the water would be too tempting and the rips are deadly!
On boulders were a couple of memorial plaques for drowning victims.
Sand being sucked out in the rip.
The Cove is only small.
Uni SA is conducting research on the island, it’s now a reserve.
The variety of rocks in one place fascinated me.
Not a good place to land a boat.
It would be easy to spend a day walking around the various tracks at any one of these lovely places.
