3 May 2014 – Adelaide to Wallaroo SA

It was actually fine when we stuck our heads out of the caravan door although it did decide to rain a little the moment that “She” headed to the “ladies”.  But never fear, “He” was the hero by waiting at the exit to the “ladies” with the appropriate wet weather gear.

Shortly after 9:00am, we left the caravan park and headed through Port Adelaide to the highway that would take us to the Yorke Peninsula.

We had very good weather conditions for towing with fuel consumption hovering around the 13 litres (per 100k’s) for the first half of the trip.  That ceased when we again encountered heavy rain followed by being slowed by a wide load heading in the same direction that blocked both of the lanes in the dual lane highway.  We spent about 15 minutes crawling behind the wide load before it was able to pull over to the side of the road to allow a large volume of traffic to pass.

We drove though Port Wakefield before crossing the top of the Yorke Peninsula to head to our lunch destination of Moonta.

We had heard about a shop that specialises in Cornish Pasties and we had to have one.  We found the said shop (the Cornish Kitchen) and the four of us enjoyed the pasties.

After lunch we headed to Wallaroo which would be our home for the next two days.  We stayed at the Wallaroo North Beach Tourist Park.

We had heard that there was a mouse plaque on the Yorke Peninsula and we saw evidence of this in the caravan park.  Fortunately the problem was not massive but we did see several small mice roaming in the grounds.  The mice are there as a result of a bumper grain harvest.  Wallaroo is a port with a grain loader and the volume of stored grain had to be seen to be believed.

We cooked salmon that we had carried from Sydney for our evening meal and it was enjoyed by all.

Sunset was magnificent over Spencer Gulf and “He” also flew the quad copter to obtain a different perspective of the sunset.
