Sunday 15th May 2022
We woke to beautiful sunshine and a picturesque morning was had alongside the Murray River. We then headed off for our drive today towards Port Augusta. We never quite know how far we will get. We drove through more vineyards and citrus farms, plains and then towards the ranges. We noticed the scenery changing to less green except in the town of Morgan which was vibrant green. We managed to get to Port Pirie in time to do some groceries and noticed most of the people were wearing masks. We were then told that they were having an uptake of Covid cases. Fingers crossed I survive the outing.
We then headed to Port Germain for the night. We enjoyed a walk along the jetty – 1.5km each way – the longest timber jetty in the southern hemisphere. We were here in 2018 after the World Titles in Adelaide. Well the plan is to head north to the Northern Territory tomorrow. Not sure how we will go for phone service so if I go missing for a couple of days you will know why.
Take care and stay safe!
