Last stop of 8 hours travel to Admirals Arch, and plenty of stops along the way.
Little Sahara, Kangaroo Island, South Australia
It was a big day! But it had to be done.
Climbed all the way up and just sat there, enjoying a view, given the time i decided not to walk any further, always concerned about not driving at Dusk.
There were a group of people have the time of their life surfing the sand and of course always one, “one more go”
It’s about an hour away from Penneshaw, be sure to stop in.
Bring lots of water!!! and of course your camera.
While i was lost in photographing Ms J’s private beach, lost track of time, she suggested we have some lunch, mmm wasn’t too hungry although, why not.
As we arrived she asked, “do you like seafood? Wine?” yes I said love both “what type of wine?” sweet and white!
Well done in ordering and thank you for shouting, super sweet of you.
So very glad we stopped for lunch, how spectacular is that view from the back of the restaurant?!!!!
It really is nice to know there are people like her left in the world, my shout next time!
Sealink Ferry, Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island,
What a smooth and easy journey from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw.
Greeted by really friendly people, happy to hear about my travel plans even offering suggestions.
A wonderful experience, can’t wait to do it all again.
Took this with a couple of hours to spare before heading back to Adelaide, my feet too sore from going further.
Imagine having this beautiful beach all to yourself on a warm sunny day.
It’s possible at Hanson Bay, Kangaroo Island!
Took about 2 hours to drive from Penneshaw, taking my time again,
A stop at Flinders Chase Information Centre, Just as well, i didn’t realise that there was a fee to enter the National park, I said that to the lady behind the counter, to which she replied “well obviously you were not looking out for signs!”
I said “that’s right I was too busy looking out for Roos!”
I spent about 2 hours here mostly timing in between small bus loads of people visiting, with a wonderful selection of accents.
At one stage I had to organise a group of young girls to get their photos around performing hand stands, really?!!!! apart from the fact that at that age we think we are immortal, really didn’t want to see anyone fall off the edge!!!
Thought it was kind of funny, they thanked me before they left!
Allowing an American tourist who was annoyed at them, I gestured after you, get your shots in first, also a thank you, and man who decided to ignore me, camera set up tripod included, oh well he did say sorry!!! lol
Finally i got my shots, gotta be quick around people coming and going and getting a little creative using rocks to hide a few people who liked where they were standing, oh well, I think we all got our shots in the end, a stroll around, not daring to cross the line and did the right thing.
Would have been amazing at sunset, so if you are brave enough to travel at that time, please be careful. I only saw one Roo cross about 100 metres in front of me although lots of road kill and skid marks on the road.
Feeling blessed about my safe journey to and from, in fact for the 3 days I was cruising around.
Stoke Bay, Kangaroo Island, South Australia
Spur of the moment decision to hop over to Kangaroo Island.
A very good friend of mine in Adelaide was generous enough to drive me to Cape Jervis to catch the ferry over.
The Adventure begins.
Off the ferry collected my hire car from Chad who runs budget, talk about fantastic and friendly service.
A two hour drive, went around in circles a couple of times, if not for road kill that I spotted, i wouldn’t have noticed.
Finally got to my destination, looking out for roos, never been so alert in all my life.
A short walk to the beach, through a very cool cave, unfortunately the tide was out.
My skin was quickly warmed up, deep breaths and a sense of freedom as i climbed over rocks close the edge, the sea was calm and quiet, gentle waves crashing hearing only children laugh in the distance as they played on the beach.
Two hours drive back, a stop at the pub with a reward cider having a good laugh with the locals.
