The Easter break is pending, and the locals are heading for the coastal towns, so the main Ceduna caravan parks were full to the brim. This turned out to be a bonus, as we had to go back to the “airport caravan park”, which we had snubbed earlier, and it turned out to be an absolute pearler. Not for anyone who's looking for stars and ratings, mind you. I was looking for peace and quiet, grass underfoot and some power. Clean showers (albeit very dark ones, as the lights are on timers and the weather was feral) and toilets complete my list, so this place ticked all the boxes for a restful night’s sleep. And, as much as we had loved Coffin Bay and we both like children on a good day, it was absolute heaven to be back with some really ancient grey nomads and die-hard home-made-bus-dwellers who are all on their way somewhere – they just can’t tell you when or where. No squeals, no dramas, just polite small talk in your jarmies on the way to the ablutions block – or a friendly wave, if that’s all you feel up to. Apart from the odd light plane on dusk, the airport turned out to be much more restful than you’d expect, too.
