At one time we drove down a particularly steep road and wondered how we would pull off driving back up it again!! Slowly was my guess.
As we rounded the bend we arrived at our destination and saw the beautiful water and a jetty protruding out into the blueness.
The campground was so lovely with lots of green grass and tall trees. Just how I liked a camp site; another little bit of paradise.

The 7 of them spent lots of time together running around like mad monkeys enjoying each others company.
One afternoon, while I was sitting outside and studying, the camp host came over to me and mentioned that he could see several people on the cliff face. As Rasmus had taken the kids for a walk to a cave not far away I decided I had better take some interest. The host had his binoculars and showed me 4 people above the cave opening.

Yes, I confirmed, that was my husband, our friend and our respective eldest sons. Then I was told an alarming story about past hikers who had attempted a similar feat and gotten stuck. The emergency services had had to be called who brought in helicopters to retrieve them!! Oh Dear!!

Rapid Bay- again
It was nice to be back in Rapid Bay to some relative home comforts after the roughness of a weeks worth of tent living. We had planned to stay only for the night and move straight on to Adelaide but for the life of me we could not find a caravan park- and we weren't even looking for a cheapie this time!! What was going on in the state's capital that we didn't know about?

They caught lots of these little fish which they didn't know the name of but nicknamed 'the Ben' in his honour.
Unfortunately, Ben didn't catch anything and was quite devastated. He had been so determined to get us our dinner. Poor little blossom, there will be a next time.
Finally, after many phone calls we landed a caravan spot in our price range and tucked up the van and our things to make tracks to Hahndorf-land of the Bratwurst sausage!
