Where I stayed
We left Ellison with another promise of smooth bays and happy fish ready to jump into the bucket. We ended up in Venus Bay. It was a nice town with signs saying "Don't drink the water". Had a look around the beach,had a wave to all 42 residents and took off again.
We stop at a The Waterhole (caves) then on to Mt Camel with a rumour of Grand Salmon but alas, the surf was too wild for fishing, but not for 3 German guys that turned up with a surfboard mind you. I was watching from the beach when the started walking down thinking "I'm not sure what they can see, but what are they going to surf" It was just white wash with a monster rip. Plus they walk past the Danger sign (see photo)
We kept driving until Streaky Bay, famous for a film in the 70's called "Blue Fin" (and still very proud ) and Blue Swimmers.
Out with our trusty net again
So with our bucket full of crabs and an empty tummy, we trotted of the the campground. We ate, showered then decided we would do a little night driving while the kids were sleeping. We stopped at a place called Haslam which was famous for something the aren't famous for anymore. Anyway, had a nice sleep and in the morning we woke when the Oyster Boats were coming in. Bought a Doz fresh off the boats for $5. Showed the boy how to open them, maybe next time he'll have a crack.
We drove to Ceduna, the last "major" towns before the Nullarbor. The Caravan Park was behind a 12foot barbed wire fence and the lady at the tourist info was as irritating as they come. "no I can't recommend a caravan park for you" and "Please ask your son not to touch that, it may break" well lady, if he breaks your "$12 Made in China Australian souvenir", I'll pay the 3cents it costs to make. "Let's blow this town"
So.... we are now stopped at a Roadhouse campground at Nundroo. Tanja just cooked Burgers which we had with Bread we bought from a wheat farm road side booth, then we watched a beautiful full moon rise. Tomorrow a few more hundred K's across the Bight
