|Fishing not possible in Edenhope |
due to blue/green algae
The man at the information office said it was ok so we headed back out there (but not before I bought some lovely eggs from Debbie’s chooks!).
Edenhope had a really feel to it and I really enjoyed staying at the show grounds It was so peaceful.
We only stayed the night but we had Debbie's eggs as a reminder of our little stay :o)

There was a nice library where we parked our caravan and our car next to. We had lunch there as well.
Then we were on the road again [to Wrights Bay] .
Wright's Bay was pretty cool

There were flounders and toadfish and I even saw some octopus eggs.
I don't know if this place/beach would be called a rock pool or not because it has the rock bit covered but not the pool bit-haha.

Anyway, their car got stuck in the sand one night and dad went to help them get free.
Three days later when we tried to use our car it didn't work! The disk break got a tiny bit of rust on it from being on the salty sand [don't worry Chris, it's all good now]
Isn't that a dandy.
A few hours was spent in Kingston SE on the way to Meningie
Old rest stop near Meningie
However, it was a weird set up! We found a track and veered off to the left from the highway we had been driving on.
New experience for me but as a 6 week old seasoned camper I thought I had better start rolling with the punches.
|millions of Fire Ants|
As we had been rolling back and forth trying to find a level spot we had disturbed a nest and they had come out in their 100's-maybe 1000's- to see what all the commotion was about.
We instructed the kids to keep their shoes on-yes, you too Molly- and stay down the fire ant-less end of the van.
Excellent parenting job done-now to make dinner.
While I was doing that Rasmus and Ben jumped the fence into someone's 1 million acre property and went exploring. I saw them jumping up and down at one stage and later when I asked them what they were doing they explained that they had found another fire ant nest and were making a kerfuffle, or is that a hoo-ha?-to bring them all out again. Parenting job now called into question.
