After a great time on the Nullarbor, we began the final leg of our journey homeward.
We had a sneak peep at Gawler National Park as it was so close by and we couldn’t resist. A taste of things to come on our next trip back to SA.
We decided to revisit Warren Gorge near Quorn where we had spent an afternoon at the early stages of our trip. We also hoped to spot the beautiful Yellow footed Wallaby again. Alas, no luck in that department but we took a lovely 5km walk around the gorge and enjoyed the sunshine. Given the recent spring rains it was far greener than last time.
From here we travelled across to the Clare Valley and stayed in a small town 30kms north of Clare called Yacka. Once again we had a day of sunshine. We popped into Clare the following day and spent several hours sipping the best lattes in our whole trip while the weather began to decline.
We ended up sitting out the storm in Yacka. Lots of thunder, rain and rocking, howling winds. We had a hilarious day with lots of chocolate being consumed and game playing. The lack of power was no issue for us as we are self contained. We barely left the van all day.When we left on the Friday we were amazed to see that the ‘creek’ had become a river.
So here we are back in our home state. The Bulldogs have just won their first grand final in over 60 years and it’s raining again.
With over 25,000 km’s travelled, no flat tyres or other incidents of note, we consider ourselves very fortunate indeed. We have a magnificent country and look forward to exploring it further in the future.
Many thanks to all those who have followed our blog, it’s been great to have you along for the ride.
Over and out…..fandl
