It only took a few days to spring around the Fleurieu Peninsula - takes longer to pronounce the name. Even the locals have different opinions on how to pronounce it.
OK - to get here what did we have to do - photos tell the story:
Flower - growing naturally at Cape Jervis.
We camped at the Cape Jervis Caravan Park which is an old sheep station and now set up with animals and farm machinery etc. which we were able to wander around looking at. While wandering I took the following photo of my invisible friend playing on the invisible swing:
Next photo stop was Victor Harbour, after driving through some lovely hilly country side, and viewing Kangaroo Island from afar.
Stayed at Kingston SE and found the most clear sign re camping so far. BUT it still leaves camper trailer owners unsure:
The SE in Kingston SE stands for South East and was incorporated into the name to distinguish it from another town called Kingston in South Australia. Kingston SE is a lovely little fishing/tourist village which welcomes travellers like us. The other Kingston calls itself Kingston on the Murray. The photo next is of our camp at Kingston SE - well cared for gardens and facilities:
Cape Jaffa lighthouse is actually in Kingston SE and was moved to its current location 1996 by volunteers and serves as an historical artifact. It was originally constructed in 1872.
Unfortunately Lacepede Bay has had a major storm or two, which has washed a lot of seaweed up on to the beach. The jetty is blocked by the seaweed which has built right up to the top of the railings half way along the length of the jetty.
Another natural feature at Robe is the 'doorway' - an arch just out from where the obelisk is.
On the way to Harrow we stopped at Edenhope for some supplies. The town has Lake Wallace , normally good for recreational boating and swimming but unfortunately is lacking in water: The jetty ends before the water begins, and there is definitely no diving here.
