Today we farewelled Port Lincoln cruising up the West coast heading towards Ceduna. Our first stop was Coffin Bay about an hour out of Port Lincoln few photos and on way, the next stop was a real surprise what we thought was going to be a lookout of the salt lake at Mt Hope ended up taking us up over a hill to a very impressive sheer cliff coastline! It was very, very windy I was a little worried we might have lost one off the edge but all good. Kept heading North, stopping briefly in Elliston, finding out about a side of the road bakery a little way up the road in Colton, an honour system where the owners of the house (the only house in Colton) cook bread daily in an old stone oven from the original school house then store it in a cupboard, you pop your money in the "honour" box. Beautiful bread, fresh fruit buns and a cob in the middle of nowhere, fantastic!

Slow going today with fierce side/head winds blowing us all over the road, a bit of distraction was a ute pulled over to the side of the road picking up his golf clubs strewn all over the Highway together with the bag buggy.

Our next brief stopover was Streaky Bay, planning on having a relaxing coffee at a coffee shop was foiled by no power in the whole town!! Luckily we could fuel up or we would have been trapped. Pushing on we make it to Ceduna (a nice and warm 41 degrees) by just after 4pm pulling up at the Big 4 after doing a lap of the town back to the familiar sights from further up North of our indigenous friends relaxing under the trees, out the front of shops, on the steps of the courthouse, everywhere really! Nice and relaxed, what a life.

Dinner involved eating all our salad & vegies ready for quarantine when we cross the border into W.A.

Getting sick of salad!

Feed us meat Mackays.
