It feels ages since I last wrote, as I’ve been places, met people and animals, and had much to think about and muse upon.
I’ve taken heaps of photos, but sometimes days go by before I’m able to download and look at them. Sometimes it’s because there’s been so much activity, that I run out of time and energy, and other times it’s lack of power for the equipment. However, I’m camped with a powered site tonight, and so I’ll begin to catch up a little.
After the showjumping at Mt. Pleasant, I headed down south, taking a long route through the Adelaide Hills, looking at places I was familiar with a long time ago. It’s lost its charm for me now, as it’s increased in population and road traffic. I was glad to finally escape from it all. We did a short camp near Langhorne Creek, then took a detour next day to Milang just cos we could. 🙂
Next stop was lunch at Meningie, on the Lake Albert. Part of the Coorong.
These are the words of one of the Traditional Elders of the area.
Pelicans abound in the area. Wonderful wonderful birds 🙂
At Kingston SE I was able to catch up with a friend of mine. While there, Fred and I managed to get in a paddle on the beach.
A couple of days later, we headed back north again, this time at a more leisurely pace, stopping off firstly at The Granites. This is a place we’ll return to more often, now I know what it’s like! Amazing place.
Camp that night was beside the Lake Albert at Meningie. A pleasant caravan park.
That evening I met again a couple I’d spoken to briefly at the Granites, and we ended up sharing a bottle of wine and stories. They were from USA, and really enjoying their visit to Oz. Nice nice folk. Meeting and making connections, no matter how brief, is why I travel.
Even Fred made a connection, of sorts, with the ‘dog’ at the caravan park entrance.
Then I was back to Mt. Pleasant, where I got more and more of my horsey fix! More on that next time 🙂
