We continued south along the A32 highway skirting Adelaide, we wanted to get further south and see if we could take the ferry to Kangaroo Island from Cape Jarvis for a day or two. Stopping in Yankalilla, having driven through kilometres of vineyards producing some of Australia's best wines, we called into the tourist office and were disappointed with the information we received. The ferry to Kangaroo Island run by Sealink, a company I know well from Europe, was ridiculously expensive, AU$500 return for the 15 minute crossing, we decided to give it a miss. A few kilometres further along the peninsula coast we came to a beautiful beach with a basic camper park, we set up camp right on the beach amongst a number of other campers. Later in the evening the clear sky filled with stars, the Milky way clearly visible, the moon was really bright, allowing me to take a few photo's. After a good nights sleep and with the sun shining from a clear sky, we were surprised to see a shoal of Dolphins swimming by close to the shore, what a pleasure to see. We made up our minds to stay for a second night, which proved to be a good decision as around midday a couple from Adelaide turned up with a large caravan and set up next to us. They were a super couple, Pat was of Italian decent and happily chatted away to Niki in Italian. We joined them for drinks and they gave us lots of tips about places to visit and campsites along our route towards Melbourne, which would take us through the Coorong National Park.
It seems I've been travelling all my life. For the past eight years I've been following a simple, nomadic lifestyle full time touring in a camper van and meeting with other like minded travellers.
