The landscape on the drive down was more undulating until we hit the coastal plain which reminded us a lot of WA. Very flat and dry and wind blown.
Stopped at Port Pirie to get some supplies and had a quick look at the harbour which was across the road from the supermarket. Looking to the east we could see the mountains which are quite imposing and run north/south about 5 – 6 km inland from the coast.
We picked a place called Port Germein to stop at
It was windy when we got to our destination and the wind picked up as the afternoon went on. We went for a walk around town which didn't take very long and then walked out to the end of the jetty. The walk back was a lot easier than the walk out due to the wind.
The town is a lot like where we lived in WA at Leeman. Even the trees are similar. It was that wind blown feel about it.
Apparently there are crabs about and the van park has a special little area where they can be cooked up.
We put the awning down in the evening as otherwise it would have kept us awake all night with the buffeting from the wind which was coming straight in off the ocean. It was around 15 degrees at 6pm and was projected to get down to 6 overnight. Good night for staying in doors.
