We made it to Carol and Robin's on Monday the 30th. They have a wonderful place. About 105 acres with beautiful views of the Myponga reservoit to one direction and Bay St. Vincent to the other. There home is very nice and they have updated a 150 year-old cottage into a guest's quarters. Carol is a fantastic hostess and exceptional cook. Tuesday Trox made a ride around the area and I went into town with Carol.

Today Trox and I are making a short excursion back along the coast to see some things we missed but will return to C and R's for the night. We don't know for sure how long we will stay with C and R and are not sure what we will do when we leave here - head north? west? or east? Not south - that is for sure.
Our excursion yesterday started at Second Valley where the geology is amazing. The rocks actually resemble beautifully grained wood.

On the way to Carol and Roger's after crossing the Murray we stopped at Middleton to watch the surfers. The water had an algae because of all the fresh water the Murray has dumped in the sea this year. It made the water look muddy.
