Saturday April 1
We left Adelaide just on 8.30 am and found our way out to The South East Freeway with the aid of our GPS navigator. It wasn't too long and we were in Hahndorf where we stopped for a look around (once we had found somewhere to park 4 vans).
As we were strolling along we came upon a well carved seat outside a pub which John just had to try.
There are lots of quite old buildings in town and the whole area is very touristy. Took a photo of John with 3 girls in front of an old hotel.
We noticed a sign which said tea/coffee $6 and while we were talking about going over the road to it, the owner of another coffee shop we were standing in front of offered to give us tea/coffee scones with jam and German cream as well as a fire heated area to sit in, so we took up his offer. The service etc here was great.
We drove from here to Murray Bridge where we had a stroll around a small park (a bit hilly) which had a lot of roses in it. It overlooked the Murray Bridge rail crossing.
Back in the cars and on to Tailem Bend where we bought pies etc for lunch then a short trip to tonights rest are just 7 kms down the Princes Highway towards Kingston SE.
Sunday April 2
Really not very much to report today. John hadn't changed his clocks and watches to reflect the end of daylight saving last night so he got up and ready to leave an hour earlier than everyone else. We drove south alongside The Coorong Wetlands through Policemans Point and salt Creek to Kingston SE.
Wendy and John went for a long walk to try to find the track that Wendy took last time we were here when she got lost in the dark.
Hiroe and I went for a walk out to the end of the old jetty here then along the foreshore to the old lighthouse which had been at the end of the original jetty.
Monday April 3
We left Kingston just after 8.00 and shortly after took a photo of the towns Big Lobster with Hiroe standing under it.
Onwards then to Naracorte then crossed the State border into Victoria just before the small village of Aspley. We had morning tea here and I took a photo of the unusual hotel here; The Border Inn.
We continued on through Edenhope to a free campsite just 9 km south west of the small town of Natimuk.
