Off to Marion Bay to see what we can see….

As you can see from the map Marion Bay is on the sole of York Peninsular just across from Kangaroo Island…

This is also the furthest point from home for us this trip. Lots of new homes and its only 3 hours from Adelaide, we spotted a very nice 4 bed place opposite the beach (literally at the front door – you just have to get over the 1 metre high mound of decaying seagrass to get to the water) just reduced to $465,000, that’s cheaper than a 2 bed retirement villa at home…

We took the scenic route via Cony Point and apart from the “Howling Dog Tavern” there wasn’t much there, not even a pier with a Ferris wheel on it… lots of new homes there too…

We were going to push on to Stenhouse Bay but signs kept telling us we had to pay an entry fee online only so we retreated to the Tavern for lunch. It’s all very new and pseudo sophisticated probably to fit in with the crowd who own all the new homes…

Nice food and cold West End ale were had…

Then back to the van park the direct route where we did some washing, I thought I was missing a pair of socks but I think that I thought there was three pair when in reality there are only 2 pair… Aldi have socks on special but there are no Aldi shops anywhere near our route. I may find some at Ardrossan while I’m looking for Cornish Pasties…

The pressure reduction valve in the van is faulty so I fill the van tank and use the pump to supply water. The water here is rather nice it’s all desalinated seawater so there is no typical muddy aftertaste left on the palate and the electric jug element doesn’t get scaled up.

Tomorrow we will visit Edithburgh, as it’s a Sunday we could have a gunfight in the main street without shooting anyone…
