The day began with a brisk morning walk around the city of Mount Gambier, before packing up and heading off for the day. One could get used to the idea of not having to do school with the kids, but at least we have school holidays were we can sit back and relax.

After leaving Mount Gambier we headed the Patrol towards Millicent and had lunch in the park next to the Information Centre, I had decided to do the coastal trip and we then headed to Beachport as we drove into Beachport there was one of those knitted bicycles that I saw yesterday in the library. I told Rosalee to take a photo of it so I could put it on the blog. What do you do in Beachport, to stretch your legs but run up and down their floating docks that rise and fall with the waves. This was great fun for all the kids little and big alike. The girls all picked yellow flowers and played games in the car of marrying off their dolls to poor Baby Elijah.

From Beachport we headed to Robe to checkout the beach and town centre, along the way we were looking at the clouds and how they looked like rain falling, however a few kilometres later we realised what we thought was rain was actually smoke from a controlled burn off by some local farmers.

We arrived at Robe, and I pulled up and Rosalee looked at me and said can’t we go on, and I said “but we are touring dont you want to see Robe?”, she looked around and said “I have seen it”. On the way out of town we saw a Art Gallery shop that was named “A Fish named Rhonda”.. Ha Ha.

Kingston S.E. was our destination for our free camp for the night, there are actually two free campspots one at the Jetty and the other at Wyomi beach, we stayed at Wyomi which was much less crowded and had toilets and water with soap. Oh the luxury.

THe kids took to their bikes and they rode along the beach on a newly formed bike track into KIngston after 3 klms we turned around and came back to our campsite.

I headed in to town to check out the Big Lobster and took a phot with the glow of the afternoon sun hitting it brightly, and as I returned Rosalee went to take the setting sun over the Southern Ocean.

One additional thing Rosalee has become a fly killing black belt in that she has killed close to 70 flies that we accumulated at the Mount Gambier Showgrounds. Go Girl!
