We headed off early a different way...this time through Milang to Langhorne Creek..over the ferry at Wellington...down through Meningie then across to Coonalpyn then down to Bordertown
We had a look at the free camp area by the lake but it was just to noisey with train and semi's so we headed towards Mundulla to find a camp area called Jimmies Waterhole...but couldnt pin point it as GPS said we arrived but all we found was a very small triangle area along side the main road so we decided to stay the night at Mundulla oval...hoping not to meet up again with the locals we dealt with last time.
To their credit they had fixed the toilets nicely ...we set up staying the night.
We headed out early and headed south again...this time stopping at Western Flats.....very nice setup......all to neat...might be busy so we continued SW to Frances...to the Oval........was very dry and with no power.....we ended up back at Lake Ratzcastle...set up only to find the lake was now bone dry.
Over night there were many campers...that left this morning...more came in that night
same as yesterday.......an old chap with a old caravan parked near us...spent lot of time chatting with him over the next 4 days
Sunday Day5...Monday Day6
in the afternoon a 4x4 towing a large van arrived ...only to find it was Hugo and wife in their brand new Island Star caravan..a great evening was had chatting about the Lake Eyre trip
Hugo left early to beat the continuing heat and Graeme (the old chap) head off too........leaving us all by ourselves.
Late evening I felt it was going to rain....so we packed up the awning and annex canvas and put things away that might get wet...it was still very hot in bed but by midnight it did start raining...a quick close of windows
since we were mostly packed up we decided that we will head home, as more rain was forcasted...on the road by 7:30am and home by 1pm
this is the last trip for this year
