Pretty in Pink – South Australian Salt Lakes

5 Comments

If you’ve ever seen photos on social media and tourism advertising of incredible looking bubble gum pink coloured lakes, you may think a fair bit of photo manipulation has happened, but it is possible to see these lakes with your own eyes and no filters required, in South Australia.

South Australia’s Silo Art Trail

9 Comments

I’m gradually getting around to visiting as many painted silos and water towers around the country as I can, and added to that are the many, many brilliant examples of street art and murals in towns across Australia.

Here are a few of the incredible silos to look for as you travel in South Australia.

The SA Town being Engulfed by Sand Dunes

6 Comments

ABC News Australia has a story today on the town of Fowlers Bay on the far west coast of South Australia, which is slowly being engulfed by the sand dunes on its doorstep. We were there not long ago and you could see how these magnificent huge dunes are encroaching. To see the full ABC story I’ve included the link at the end of this post.

This story made me go back into the many, many old photo albums I have, to see if there were any noticeable differences from way back when we used to visit and camp in this area in the 1980s, compared to our visit just last month.

Point Drummond Eyre Peninsula

8 Comments

On our slow sojourn around Eyre Peninsula we have been deliberately stopping in at every beach and free camp we can find to see and try some for ourselves. Some have been really easy to access on wide dirt roads that have been well maintained and others, well they take a little more effort to get to.

These roads less travelled often lead to some pretty remarkable spots though, and for your effort you are rewarded with uncrowded places to park a van and enjoy the serenity.

Surf Beaches to Die For on Eyre Peninsula

6 Comments

Not far from Elliston we discover and stay at another ‘free camp’, a council maintained camping area with defined bays for caravans and campers and a single flushing toilet and cold shower.

This is Sheringa Beach, known for great surf fishing, surfing and crisp, clean and white sand dunes. It cost $20 per night to stay, again a bit rich considering the basic facilities here.

Pivot has been the word and action for many businesses during the Covid pandemic, including for freelancers who have had to adapt and look for opportunities outside of their usual fields. The lack of opportunity to travel within Australia, has been challenging but being open to any opportunity to use your skills is key.

I have a number of projects I’m working on at the moment which will hopefully come to fruition, but it’s always good to challenge yourself and try something new.
