    We spent our first night at Penola-a town approximately 390 kms south of Adelaide and 424 kms west of Melbourne.
    Penola is best known for its association with Mary MacKillop, Australia's first Catholic saint, who lived and worked in the area.
    Duncan and his family spent several years in the area living and farming at a property they named " Angus Downs ", where they farmed beef and sheep. Wal and Lorna had purchased a large area of natural bush to develop into a functioning farm, initially living near the town and later Wal building a farm house for the family.
    We stopped off at Duncan's primary school at Penola- established in1855 and today is a well maintained school, he rememberd playing in the school yard with friends.
    We took some time to drive around the town giving Duncan the joy of remembering buildings and stories of his youth. He remembers well attending the local St Mary's Anglican church so he took young Mawson along to learn about being a good boy.
    Visitors to the town will find a lively range of cafes, galleries, art and crafts. Nearby is the famous Coonawarra wine region and for those wanting something different you can hire a bike from Penola and ride to the wineries.

    Wind und Wellen als Ingenieur und Künstler. Und das kilometerlang an der Küste.
    Aber auch: Viele Chinesen. Die sind laut, distanzlos und ignorant.Wer nur fotographiert, bekommt nichts mit.
    Erstes Bad in der geschützten Lady Bay in Waarambola.
    Danach fahren wir nochmal ca, 200 km bis Penola, am Rande der Weinregion Coonemaars.Gegessen haben wir im ältesten Hotel ( 19.Jahrhundert) mit einem Schottenkarofussboden und etwas abgewetzten roten Ledersesseln.
    Die Portionen waren riesig. wahrscheinlich sind die auf die Waldarbeiter, die in den riesigen Wäldern arbeiten ausgelegt.
