Kangaroo Island

K.I. as the locals call it, major tourist destination, lucky we were off season. Not quite what I expected, big, 150kms by 90kms, lots of driving to reach the national park, the reason we were there, which occupies about 20% of the western end of KI, the rest is rural and just like any bit of Australian bush really.
Good rocks, Remarkables, best coastal heath I've seen, no seals pics, well I did photograph some at some distance off a cliff, otherwise there's Seal Bay, a virtual theme park, you pay to step on the beach, in a tour, no thank you!


We were marooned on KI for another day due to the ferry not
running. Time to explore Penneshaw. 

The fish shop, world famous, but closed for the season.

Port Adelaide

The port that nearly wasn't. Better known for its AFL team, the port tries to be a historic port, which it is, just not a lot to it. I'm sure had we given it more time gems would have appeared, plenty of pubs.

One long tram ride from Adelaide and you're standing on the South Australian coast, so away from it all. So different from Sydney. And, and the sun sets out at sea. Glenelg is a crush in summer, but totally beautiful now, in autumn.

We befriended these Uyghur women on the wharf. They have
lived in SA for ten years.
