Day 15 - Sunday 20 May 2012

Port Lincoln

Quite heavy overcast skies today but no rain although showers were forecast. David spent the morning battling with the satellite dish, but could not manage to get a picture. In the end we gave up and headed into town, where we got some tourist info and found a place for lunch. We both had King George Whiting at Del Giorno's Cafe Restaurant. While we we eating Chris and Nola came in - we had last seen then at the caravan park in Melbourne. They had left their caravan at Burra and driven to Port Augusta as Chris had a business meeting, they are staying the night at a local hotel.

After lunch we to Coffin Bay which is about 45 kms from Port Lincoln. Coffin Bay is a sleepy holiday centre with few services not much activity at this time of year. Coffin Bay is another of Matthew Flinders discoveries in 1802, and is known for its fishing and oysters.
