Groundhog Day

Melrose, SA

After Melrose (Monday, 8th) we headed to Kimba. On the way there we spotted a pink lake and stopped to take photos.


Near the town of Lochiel, in South Australia, is a lake called Lake Bumbunga.

Apart from it being a pretty pink, it is also home to the Loch Eel monster. I didn’t believe it either. You need to Google it. Mrs Google doesn’t lie, does she?

It’s an odd feeling driving into a remote country town and knowing your way around, knowing all the shops and even some of the people (2 people recognised us – we’d been there 4 weeks earlier). That’s how it was in Kimba.

We free camped this time at the Recreation Grounds (donation only). We had showers (coin operated), toilets and a camp kitchen. It was lovely and clean too. Bargain!

Went to Workshop26 again and bought this beautiful bowl. I like to support local potters.

Groundhog Day again in Ceduna. We know our way around and have been to most every shop. Our local coffee shop remembers us and even remembers the type of coffee we drink!

I was going to drop in to see the mechanic that worked on Tank last time, but he had shut up shop. Perhaps he saw us coming!

Our first stop on the Nullarbor is Nundroo. It’s a servo with a basic campsite, but at $20 a night for a powered site, it’s not too bad. They do a good curry here, which is a bonus!

We plan to go to the Head of Bight to see the whales tomorrow (12th). Then onto WA.

In the “take 2” of our journey home, we have done 950 km (from Adelaide) and have another 1850 km to go.

Wavy South Australia

I do like it that SA drivers are so friendly. I get so many waves here. The best state for waving. 🤗

Until next time…
