From there to Eyre

After the vast expanses of the SA Outback particularly in the north of the Flinders the towns of Port Augusta and Whyalla were a great contrast - something Sarah is experiencing to a greater degree as she returns to the delights of Carmarthen and Haverfordwest.
Fortunately for me I was soon heading to the quieter coastal strip of the Eyre Peninsula where a secluded car park enabled me to service the van before spending a quiet night overlooking the sea at Iron Knob.

Beyond Port Lincoln the Lincoln National Park provided a choice of bush camping sites with good walks and bike tracks leading off around the rocky peninsula. At Fisherman's Point I secured a prime position overlooking the bay with an excellent 3G signal bouncing over from the distant town.

Two porpoises, two wedge tailed eagles, a solitary seal and a solo pelican crossed the water in front of me whilst in the distance fishing vessels of various sizes headed out to the rich waters of the Southern Ocean.

I enjoyed a ride along tracks to the lighthouse and returned along the rockier south coast before an afternoon's conservation fishing whiled away a rest day with minor repairs, computer back ups and a general sweep out undertaken.

After 18 months I have decided to refresh the blog's appearance but the usual features appear somewhere.

Thus a few pictures appear here and my location here which updates daily


The slideshow returns to the east coast of NZ's North Island.
