Port Vincent


We've set up at Pt Vincent and have decided to stay 2 weeks as it's such a nice place and as a bonus we've been getting heaps of Blue Swimmer crabs (wading out with a crab-rake) as well as large Yellowfin Whiting. Unfortunately Di has again caught the biggest fish to date - some sort of mutant whiting raised on steroids I think (not Sea Bass). We've been steaming the crabs in Di's electric frypan on a rack - this works really well. Some of the locals have made a steamer from one of those white utility buckets with the lids - they get an element from a old kettle which they screw into the side of the bucket after bending back the thermostat prong (so the element doesn't click off) - put in about 2" of water - place the crabs on a rack - steam for 30 minutes in bulk!

Farewell Edithburgh

Hello Pt Vincent

We leave for Pt Vincent tomorrow after 6 weeks based at Edithburgh. The stay here has been great. We postponed departure as many of the parks in the Eyre Peninsula (where we head next) don't take dogs during the school holidays. Edithburgh is a great base for exploring the lower peninsula and we've had sites virtually right on the foreshore throughout. We've done most of our shopping at Yorketown which is about 15k's away and as a bonus the bakery there makes fabulous vegetarian cornish pasties. Bill has been catching a few squid at both the Edithburgh jetties in between some rough weather over the last few days. See new photos.

Edithburgh # 2

Four Seasons in Half a Day

The weather has been really changeable with wind direction all over the place - some really strong winds and a little squally rain. Have been fishing with fellow caravanner Phil from Victoria and have got a few big whiting. My new speciality appears to be Port Jackson sharks and I must have caught and returned a dozen or more while Phil focussed on more edible prey.

Vietnam Photos

Better Late than Never

Attached are a few of our photos from our Vietnam trip . A lesson to take more trip notes at the time as it's sometimes hard to remember exactly where you were for each photo months afterwards.
