Yorke Peninsula – South Australia


Yorke Peninsula

Leaving the Yorke Peninsula yesterday we travelled through more little towns with historic homes & buildings, one of those , Ardrossan also had a huge grain facility capable of storing 420, 000 tonnes grain as well as the locally mined dolomite.'Most of the street signs in Ardrossan look like this!' Moving on through Port Wakefield & then on towards Adelaide. What a nightmare Adelaide traffic was & we didn’t even go right into the City! Finally found our way back towards the coastline, heading for the Fleurieu Peninsula (floo-ree-oh) & stopped for some lunch on the point at Maslin Beach, being entertained by a hang glider while we ate. 'Some of the old buildings in Ardrossan'Continued on through huge awe inspiring steep rolling hills, dotted with sheep & patterned with vineyards, Olive Groves & almond plantations. A huge statue belonging to the Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple greeted us, towering over the gullies below, a magnificent reservoir in the middle of these hills & dales & finally to stop for tonight – Cape Jervis Station and Caravan Park perched on green hills overlooking Kangaroo Island that used to be a sheep station complete with some old stone buildings – we were the only occupants.
