From town we had heard of a free camping area a few kilometers to the south in a national park by the water. From the highway we diverted onto a gravel road winding its was closer to the gulf before we reached our destination. The site was quite barren except for a few trees and the most basic of toilet blocks. It did however have a small jetty lining the banks of a tidal water way, which was a relaxing place to read a book. With the tide well and truly out we decided to search for open seas traversing the muddy flats, stumbling across wild mangrove plants and finding hundreds of giant crab shells.
Just before the sun set we had an impromptu game of "beach cricket" with new gear we had brought in Port Augusta, and then retired back into our tents for the night. The next day we awoke for breakfast and were joined by a group of kangaroos who were at a nearby house, being fed breakfast by the owner.
