Day 19 - Thursday 24 May 2012


The showers continued overnight and the wind went around to the south and eased. By mid morning the sun was out and the wind had gone back to the south-west. Not looking good for stage one across the Nullabor tomorrow as we would be pushing into a south westerly.

Di spent the afternoon tidying up the van inside and out, while I pumped up the tyres and airbags to our travelling pressures, and re-torqued the wheel nuts. Also checked the oil and coolant levels and greased the hitch. During the afternoon we visited the local Foodland Supermarket and the Celebrations Bottle Shop - now we are all stocked up for our trip across the Nullarbor.

Tonight we are heading for the Ceduna Hotel which is right next to the caravan park. The Ceduna Hotel is a community owned establishment and is a very superior pub with an up-market Bistro. Di and I both had the Filet Mignon which was excellent, companied by a Peter Lehman Shiraz, which was also excellent. The Bistro was quite crowded as a local teacher's seminar was deing held in town, as well as a bus-load of grey nomads on a tour. While we were having a pre-dinner drink we chatted to a couple of teachers from Kimba, one taught at a district school while the other taught at a primary school. They told us that the local industry was fishing, farming and mineral sands mining.
