Day 3 - Port Lincoln
Holidays provide plenty of time for realisations, some of which are important and worth having, and some which aren’t that important in the scheme of things. But I love them because they make me smile when I realise they’re the only things I do have to really think about when I’m relishing my downtime, well that and what’s for dinner. Here’s my realisations from day 3 of road tripping;
common sense thankfully does prevail when one considers the logistics of trying to get a windmill home, especially when home is eight hours away.
double beds are surely created only for young children who want to feel grown up and not for adults who have been spoilt by sleeping in a king size bed, because I’m certain double beds never used to be so small.
when your husband can say ‘I have one of those‘ more than several times as you tour a blacksmithing museum, then you know you have a problem.
going on holidays is essential for your well being and we all should do more of it. Less working and more downtime should be everyone’s goal.
there’s a whole lot of people travelling around this country who have spent bucketloads of money on their caravans. And smart caravan parks like this one have created drive thru parking spots for those who are not so good at reversing their monster caravans.
Today we headed down the coast, stopped for coffee in Tumby Bay, then detoured off the main road to visit the Koppio Smithy Museum and it was well worth the visit. It’s a bit off the beaten track in the Koppio Hills but it’s a beautiful and scenic drive and it’s such a well put together and maintained museum.
Take note of that third photo, the molten mess was all that was left of an Evinrude boat and motor after the 2005 bushfires.
Then we headed for Port Lincoln, and spent the afternoon exploring our surrounds. The caravan park has heaps of little rabbits running around everywhere, which is actually the first animal wildlife we’ve seen since we left home.
Tomorrow we go exploring the four wheel drive tracks in the national park and hopefully might spot a whale or two along the coast.
Keep smiling, Fi 🌻
