Now that school and public holidays seem a distant memory, it can be a good time to take a few days off and seek out those perfect caravan and camping spots, taking advantage of them at this quieter time. Also given the health crisis going on everywhere, a perfectly isolated beach is looking even more attractive! One such campground can be found at Rapid Bay in South Australia. This campground is extremely popular through summer and on weekends mainly due to the fact that it has an incredibly picturesque position, right on the beach and has a long jetty with deep water, perfect for fishers. Being only around 100 kilometres from Adelaide it’s an easy one to get to as well.
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a relaxed restaurant specialising in dishes containing Goolwa cockles, than behind the sand dunes overlooking the beach where they can be harvested. The Kuti shack is at the end of Beach Road at Goolwa Beach and sits between the new Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club and the popular surf beach. If you’re planning a holiday to the Fleurieu Peninsula region of South Australia, you will want to add the Kuti Shack to your list of places to try if you want the best views and seafood experiences on the coast.
I stumbled across this event on Goolwa Beach by accident earlier this month and had no idea what it was all about. So what is Send n Slash? Well this is only the third time this event has occurred here in South Australia and it’s a freeride jetski competition, put on by the people involved in the sport to showcase the skills of riders in this wild activity. It was held over two days with teams of riders from around Australia converging on Goolwa Beach for the competition.
Winter in Southern and Eastern Australia usually means whale migration time along the coasts. They are starting to be seen with a little more frequency on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, just in time for the winter school holidays.
You know what it’s like, holidays and weekends are too short and when the weather is perfect there are so many ideas to pack into a short amount of time. I find that taking photos can challenge you to practice mindfulness and being in the moment, by noticing all the simple things in life that bring you joy and add a sense of calm.
There was a break in my blog posting for this past week or so because of a sad event affecting our family. My mother in law passed away just over a week ago, so naturally these times call for everything to be put aside while you deal with the processes in saying goodbye to a family member. Amongst the hard but necessary details of arrangements to be made, there are times of reminiscing and remembering stories, as well as looking back at a lifetime of photographs and memories.
Have you ever been scrolling through pictures on Instagram and said to yourself ‘Wow, where is that, I want to see that one day’’? Welcome to the world of social media tourism. What is social media tourism? To me it’s the epitome of ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’. I’m the first one to be hooked in by a photograph that has me saying ‘Oh I am definitely going there one day’.
