This morning we made our way leisurely to Kingston SE to fill up with diesel from BP. As we ventured along and turned onto the highway a vehicle started tooting at us. It took us only a moment to figure out what the tooting was all about – we had forgotten to disconnect the power cord attached to the Engel in the back Hornet. It was dragging along the road behind us. Surprisingly we had heard nothing as we left the caravan park so we are hoping the chairs and table are all still good.
Once we had reached Kingston SE (don’t ask me what the SE stands for or why it is necessary) we refuelled and decided to take a drive around the township. We made a point of finding Larry the Lobster and getting his photo, and I ate my ice cream while taking photos of the lovely walking bridge and sundial in the park across from Larry.
One of the caravan parks in Kingston SE is right on the beach. I should imagine that it would be pretty hairy if there we strong winds blowing. We did not stop at the lighthouse which is just down from the park and is built on stilts – a most unusual design for a light house.
We returned to Robe and went down the main street to the Information Centre. The lady there was very helpful, and we collected a lot of brochures. We wandered across the road to the beach to see a group of four men setting up for windsurfing. At the moment the sun is shining but the wind is very cool. We got some terrific shots of them in action.
We then went to Foodland for bread and ham. It is a combined Foodland/IGA and quite a large store. The Deli department is not large and some of the salads do not look very fresh, but the ham looked fine.
Once we got back to the van, we put the privacy screen up attached to the awning with very large tent pegs securing it in place. We bought some de-flapping devices to attach the awning to the roof bar of the awning structure and it is working a treat. Russ did his meditation and I played a game and did some reading until he surfaced.
The weather forecast for tomorrow is wind and rain so we may end up having a lazy day once again. We are amazed at the number of caravans that pull up here during the course of the day. Some of them stay a few days and others only stay overnight. In summer time the place must be jumping!
