Dec 5, 2016 - Port Lincoln to Lipsom Cove (about 50k from Port Lincoln)

Just a leisurely drive a bit further up the peninsula today to Lipsom Cove. The landscape was mainly acres of rolling wheat fields as far as the eye can see. Harvesting is in full swing with lots of grain trucks on the road. The green wheat fields from WA are now golden brown here in SA. Back in Port Lincoln we had also seen the ships going in and out of loaded with grain. We stopped briefly in Tumby Bay to have a look around - another sleepy beachside town that will probably be very busy in the next few weeks, before getting onto the dirt...

Mar 22, 2015 - too good

This is just a great spot even though it is too windy to go fishing we have decided to stay for another day. I did go for a walk along the beach 22/3 Well what a change in the weather we woke to a beautiful day and the water is like glass. We are staying another day. Peter is going to go out in the kayak. I went up the beach to have a go at getting squid but had no luck. The water is so clear. I went for a swim. The wind came in just after lunch and changed everything. Peter managed to get 2 crabs that was his lunch. Today has been one of...

Mar 20, 2015 - staying

19/3 Even though it is blowing a gale and we can't go fishing we decided to stay another day have a lay day.

Mar 8, 2015 - Tumby Bay

At Tumby Bay atm. Early morning fish at the pier produced 7 large squid, then at low tide we went walking in the shallow weed beds in front of the caravan park and collected 25 razor fish (Mussels on steroids!). You get a medallion of meat out of each one and they are crumbed and deep fried or pickled if you prefer them that way. Will get more before we leave and take some pics to post later. Shells are 30 - 40cm long and the meat is the size of a 20 cent coin about 1 cm thick. There are also scallops laying on the sand. Wendy went...

Nov 28, 2011 - Tumby Bay - Nov 27-Dec 2

Had a good run down from Whyalla. Tumby Bay is a lovely little seaside town, set right on the edge of a huge bay and the caravan park is also right on the waterfront and easy walking distance into town. We had days out to Port Lincoln and to Coffin Bay - both these are very picturesque - Port Lincoln is quite large - main industries are tuna and oysters - and Coffin Bay is very small, but set on the shores of multiple bays, protected from the southerlies, with oyster beds in the waist deep waters. I had some of their famous Coffin Bay...
