A consensus has been reached; plans have been made; tickets purchased; and logistics figured. In other words - we know our next destination. In the meantime we have made a number of day trips from Carol and Robin's and are now out for four days or so traveling the Yorke Peninsula.
12 June 2012
Before leaving for the Yorke Peninsula we made some day trips. One was to Hallett Cove north of Carol and Robin's. There are kilometers of boardwalk there along the cliffs above the shoreline in and around some pretty amazing geological formations. We spent a number of hours walking around looking at the rocks and the sea and the birds. Boardwalk makes for very easy walking even when having to go up and down.

along with erosion make for spectacular formations

|we had been watching this raptor|
for awhile when he took off
|the boardwalks go on forever|
|Finished my milk now wondering|
if you have anything interesting
|May I come in?|
|Oh, this is an exciting place to explore!|
|This guy was sitting on the light pole|
|The gulls kept harassing him but he wouldn't leave|
|the scalloped cliff edges were cool|
|this light house is stainless steel!|
|360 degree view near lighthouse|
|the water was amazingly clear|
|the wind and water can make wonderful rock formations|

That brings me full circle to our decision, plans, etc. We leave on an airplane the 14th for Melbourne and then on the 18th we head back to the U.S. where we will arrive in New Mexico on the 18th. Bunyip is going to stay at a very nice storage facility where they will plug him in once a week or so and start him every fortnight. He will await our return next May when we will head north towards Darwin through Alice Springs via Ayers rock.
And so this blog comes to a close with just one more update to let you know we have arrived stateside safely. Thanks for following us and keeping in touch.
