The weather at Port Lincoln was very good. We camped at North Sheilds which was a bit out of the town but right on the water. There was an old road turned into a footpath where Beemer loved to walk. I could take him down the path for a bit over a kilometre and then back along the beach home. Still no fishing yet but we did find a great fresh fish shop and had a nice feed of prawns and kingfish.

We went for a drive with Ken and Kath to Coffin Bay, then up to Cummins and Tumby Bay for lunch.

We planed to stay at Elliston for a week. As it turned out we ended up there for 9 days as the day we were to leave the northerly wind got up so we decided to stay a couple of extra days. It’s not pleasant travelling with the van in the wind if you don’t have to.

We met up with Ken and Kath again and went on a drive to Bramfield towards Mount Wedge, then down Rocky Valley Road and on to Talia Caves. The Woolshed cave was interesting and the steps down to the rocks. The view along the cliff is lovely.

There is also a cliff drive at Elliston where you can see the ‘Sculpture on the Cliffs’. There were surfers at Black Fellows near Anxious Bay. We did try a bit of fishing there but didn’t catch anything.
