|Friday 25th Feb; |
Have been camped at Haslam since Tuesday, about 12 other camps in here at the moment including some couples we have met at several other camps coming across the Nullabor, good facilities, a flushing toilet after long drops & plenty of water to fetch in buckets, so able to shower every day. Very social & one of our neighbors’ has given us some beautiful big crabs already cooked & cleaned, yum! Bryon is out fishing as I write this & also planning on putting our marron nets out after we do some modifications to them to suit crabs.
Congratulations to Caitlyn for getting Head Girl at school, we are very proud!
Went to Smokey Bay yesterday, has a normal caravan park but no free camping & a well stocked general store, prices not much different to Albany. All the coastal towns seem to have long jetty’s left over from the days of sea freight. Off to Streaky Bay tomorrow for groceries & washing & to visit some other camping places to pick out our next stop. Hoping they have a second hand book shop there as we are getting through the pile we have. Have been fighting mosquitos at night in the van until we found a vent behind the microwave that was not screened, much better since Bryon fixed that. Went to a oyster factory today & got shown the grading & sorting they do there, the oyster boats are out most days and we have had a lovely feed for $6 per dozen.
Thanks for the comments everyone, George I will get back to you soon with some details about life in the van. I am doing this update standing against a washing machine in a laundromat in Streaky Bay where I have the laptop plugged in to recharge. Just had a feed of whiting & salt & pepper squid for lunch, was yummy! Have been to check out some other camping site but still not sure where we are going after Haslam.
