What a great night sleep – 9 hours. Huh never get that at home. The weather god was kind as it was mild all night, no rain or wind, in fact it was perfect camping weather. Up at 6.30 a.m., where we took our time with breakfast and breaking camp before heading into South Australia. Once through the Quarantine check point we stopped in Renmark to buy fresh fruit and veggies for the next six nights. The girls went shopping whilst Sam and I topped up the fuel, cleaned the windows. We crossed the Murray River in Cadell on the ferry where the weather changed. The rain was coming and setting in for the rest of the day. Kathy decided to have a drive after lunch whilst Sam sat up front as chief navigator as we pushed on toward the Flinders Ranges.
Well the rain set in and as at 7.30 pm it hasn’t stopped. I’ve just checked the road conditions and found that the Oodnadatta Track is now closed again between Marree and Oodnadatta. Oh well we will head across to Port Augusta and up the Stuart Hwy to Kulgera which will put us back on track. That’s camping.
Dinner tonight was beef strips marinated in a honey soy served on Singapore noodles with capsicums. Dessert was simple Cadbury Chocolate.
