Feb 29, 2016 - An interesting but quite cold and blowy stay in Port MacDonnell

Port MacDonnell is our last stop in South Australia before we enter the state of Victoria and we finally reach Katie and Andy's time . Victoria is 30 min ahead of SA so we will lose 30 min tomorrow on our travel day. Port MacDonnell is a very upmarket fishing settlement.

He said he is off the west Australian coast which is a surprise as we thought the ship was going up the East Coast. The phone calls are very expensive and we were told that they were only to be used for emergencies and for special occasions, so we thought he might be able to use it for Daniel's birthday.
