    Searching for a job

    July 3, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    The past few days has been all about driving, escaping a cold wind, enjoying good brekkies and finding beautiful places to hide the car by an early afternoon - with various amounts of vegetation to hide behind - and in between applying for jobs, finding a library for Nico to do an online interview, and doing a bit of necessary laundry.Read more

    Farm Beach

    March 28, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    This is our stop for the Easter weekend. Beautiful beaches and water. Nick has already caught a few fish-whiting and flathead which we had for dinner on the Saturday night. About 4km from here is Gallipoli Beach where the movie 'Gallipoli' was made. I can see why they picked this location. Took another drive into Coffin Bay and had some yummy oysters kilpatrick.Read more

    Coffin Bay National Park

    March 15, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Situated on the western tip of Lower Eyre Peninsula, 45 kms from Port Lincolin, this idyllic little town is surrounded by sea and national parks. It is famous for fantastic seafood, notably Coffin Bay oysters. Duncan happily volunteered to just see how good they were but needed the full dozen to decide !
    The town was named after Sir Isaac Coffin, a friend of explorer Matthew Flinders.
    And Duncan's decision re how good the oysters were ? He may need to repeat the experience several times over in the future to really make up his mind. 😁

    Last train for Port Lincoln

    May 29, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    After seeing the Koalas we set off for our night camp we ended up staying at a rest stop on the Flinders hwy at Fountain.
    On our way we came to a rail crossing with the red lights flashing (this didn’t stop one idiot who just drove through) so we waited for the train to pass and we found out from a guy who was there that the train that was coming was going to be the last train ever to travel to Port Lincoln. Viterra the grain handlers have decided to end their contract with the railway changing to road, so there’s no more need for the railway therefore all the employees lose their jobs!!!Read more

    Lincoln National Park

    October 11, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Arrived late Friday arvo, too late to look around at all the camp spots available to us, so just pick one for the night because of its name ( fishermen’s point ). The next day we went for a walk to check the place out, beautiful.
    Went for a fish but only caught rock dwellers and small at that ( even using my ruler). So moved on checking out the different camp sites as we went. After a few we came across a camp site called Donington bay , perfect. Lincoln National Park is very picturesque. Didn’t catch many fish but caught a good feed of squid, delicious!! Stayed for a few days until supplies were getting low ( wine mainly) so back to Port Lincoln to top up.

    Greenly Beach

    October 23, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Left Coffin bay and drifted north up the western coast dropping in and out of all the bays as we went until we got to Greenly beach. Here we stayed a couple of days as it looked like good fishing, rock fishing. Spent some time on the rocks catching mainly cod, which either shot under a rock and snapped my line or the few l did get to shore were too small. The second day the swell was up and after being chased by some rather large waves I gave it away so I could fish another day. Compare the two videos. Very windy but great fun, although Bess wasn’t to happy with me. She thought I was taking too many chances. You know all those news stories of fishermen being washed off rocks. 🙄. Meanwhile Bess found a nice safe rock pool to paddle in.Read more

    Port Lincoln

    May 29, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    We left Arno Bay after a nice pancake breakfast heading south, we stopped off in Tumby bay to have a looksee fill up on diesel but not to stay. We continued on along the Lincoln hwy until we reached Port Lincoln where we did some more grocery shopping, then headed off hunting Koalas (hunting with a camera only). We somehow missed finding them on the way as we had no luck by the time we reached Encounter bay, so we stopped for lunch before having another look on the way back.Read more
