Tumby Bay and Port Lincoln 13 – 23 March 2014

March 22, 2014 - Port Lincoln, Australia

We said our fond goodbyes to our friends at Port Gibbon and drove the 100km south to Tumby Bay. We decide to stay at the RV Park which is a cheap camp area only 1 km from Tumby Bay. It has water and a dump point so we were set.

This would have to be one of the most beautiful towns that we have visited. The foreshore is grassed, has bbq’s, toilets, playgrounds, a big jetty and the most amazing coloured water on the planet. We had a good look around and visited the Lookout (fantastic views of the bay and town), the Mangrove Boardwalk and the Bakery (sells off all of the cakes at 3pm for $1.50). We took a drive to Port Neill for a squid from the jetty. We did actually catch 3 and one of them was the biggest squid that we have ever seen in our lives. Zac could wear the squid tube as a full arm glove it was so big! We managed to catch up with the Krammer family one last time before parting ways and heading back to reality.

After 6 nights we were heading towards Streaky Bay, but as it is so heavily booked we decided to go to Port Lincoln for a few days (another big day's drive of 45km). We decided to treat ourselves to a caravan park (it has been a few months). They had a stay 4 pay 3 deal and coupled with our discount card, worked out well. This was another of our favourite spots last year. The caravan park has its own jetty, boat ramp and swimming beach and amazing ocean views. Zac had a great time on the jetty the other night and came home with about 20 skippy. He did really well. We are perched up on the hill so have awesome views, but winds to match. We managed to do a few things that we needed a bigger town for (visit K-Mart, Target, Bunnings & Woolworths). We don’t know the next time we will be in a caravan park (maybe Esperance??) so this was really nice. The weather is cooling down now so we don’t get to go swimming like in the last few months, but we did have a good couple of warm, sunny days and got to enjoy Port Lincoln’s foreshore.

Where to next? We aren’t quite sure. It depends where we can find room for a few days. So many people we talk to lately are all going the same direction, so I think it will be a little cramped where ever we are.
