It wasn’t a very quiet 2 weeks. With all the sight seeing and all, but the most excitement we had was when the dogs baled up a fox beside the house. There was nowhere the fox could go. Farmers have a problem with foxes; they kill the chickens and newborn lambs. We tried calling the farmer on the two-way but received no response. Continue reading “Farm Stay”
On another day we drove into Elliston. We had driven though the town before but this time we stopped. We had lunch then drove around the coastal area of the town. Many years ago they placed some sculptures around the town and along the cliff. I wonted to see the big thongs as they were advertised in the tourist brochures but I was disappointed.

We made it into Streaky Bay for a food market day. We sat on grass eating fresh oysters over looking the bay then we moved on to abalone chowder and fresh prawns.

The idea for the statue took a number of years to get funded and in the end a large amount was raised by the local business and people. Continue reading “Wundinna, Pildappa Rock.”
After the Weir we drove to the farm stay. We had been given directions but when you are on the phone scribbling things down it doesn’t always turn out the right way. Well not for me they don’t and when they are country directions like just after you pass the letterbox that looks like a plane you turn left. Continue reading “Farm Stay”
