Another wild day today. At least the rain has eased but still pretty windy and cold.
We went for a drive to Robe for lunch and checked out the Limestone Coast along the way (120km round trip).
As Robe is known as the crayfish capital of Australia we had to have an appropriate lunch. So a crayfish omelette for Guy and smashed avocado and crayfish for me. Awesome food.
Back to Beachport and followed the scenic drive for a 16km round trip. The ocean was wild but still some spectacular views.
Left Beachport for Meningie/Tailem Bend but decided to drive all the way through to Port Willunga to my sister’s beach house. (450km & 7 hours).
We had a few stops along the way especially my brush with the law. I was pulled over for my first speeding infringement today. Doing 110 in a 100 zone. After the lovely policewoman checked my license, checked car rego, breath tested me and informed me it was a $450 fine, she let me off with a warning. Awesome service SA Police.
Also detoured to Coonalpyn to see the silo art. The huge grain silos have been painted with some of the local kids pictures spanning the full length of the silos. Pretty impressive.
As we are a day early to Port Will we had a nice leisurely day. I spent a couple of hours cleaning the mighty Mazda inside and out. She was pretty dirty but all good now.
We also planned out the next couple of weeks as we cross the Nullarbor to WA. We booked our accommodation at the motels along the way, as we don’t fancy having to sleeping in the car, as the stretches between roadhouses are considerable.
Lunch was at the iconic Victory Hotel. Awesome food there as we have been there a couple of times previously.
From our visit to the Cube today at the D’arenberg winery (https://www.darenberg.com.au) which is 20 minutes away from Port Willunga. We enjoyed an eight-course degustation lunch (which was awesome) before exploring the very unique Cube at this winery.
The Cube consists of 4 floors of a very unique building inside and out. It has wine tasting, a restaurant, gallery and function area.
Back to the beach tonight to watch the sunset. Not as vivid as last night but still pretty special.
Off to the big smoke today. Caught up with Deb (cousin) and Pam (friend) for lunch at a Filipino restaurant in downtown Adelaide.
Then off to the iconic Adelaide Central Market. Guy is cooking up a Filipino feast tomorrow for the Kloeden gathering so needed some supplies. Managed to get it all at the market along with a few supplies for the road next week when we head for WA.
After a busy morning, a huge Filipino feast was prepared for the family gathering. The masses arrived at midday and a great afternoon of fun and food prevailed.
And doggie bags were issued to all, as there was plenty of food to go round twice. A great family gathering was had by all.
A leisurely day where we all relaxed with walks (and swims) at the beach. Awesome weather.
Life is good.
