Port Lincoln

This fabulous old building use to be the railway station and is now the railway museum.
We stayed three nights at the Port Lincoln Tourist Park which is rated 4 star, the toilet & camp kitchen facilities were very good, but everyone was squeezed in like sardines on the sites, if you put your awning out you were touching the van next door and the first site they tried to put us on was one big puddle of water and the one we ended up on was so uneven we had to jack the van up on two sides. The weather again was not nice, rainy & very windy. The up side was we met two couples with Retreat vans but different models to ours, one of the couples originally come from John's home town of Alexandria in New Zealand. We are finding the more we talk to people just how small the world is!
Our power problems are still ongoing, but may be a warranty job so lots of phone calls and emails are being exchanged. We have weakened and are in the process of buying a 2 kva generator, which hopefully should arrive Friday or Saturday. We have now moved onto Louth Bay.

Three times Melbourne Cup winner "Makybe Diva" statue over looking Boston Bay.
Very life like and accurate down to all the veins etc.

The big grain terminal leading to the main wharf in Boston Bay. Out in the bay there are lots of big circular tuna farms.
Had the Nissan in for another wheel alignment, balance and tyre rotations. I visited the patchwork shop again for another fix and chat to the ladies, and yes, I weakened  and bought some things.
We went to Pier Hotel Restaurant for Bryon's birthday lunch and had another fabulous feed, seafood for me & steak for Bryon. 
At the fisherman's wharf watching one of the fishing boat coming up the canal leading to the wharf.
Again at the fisherman's wharf with dozens of fishing ships lined up, masts as far as you can see.

  1. Ok, Sis, what are the power problems you are having? More detail about the caravan's performance please. Pics are still great, you seem to be incrementing around Spencer's Gulf.
