Woke to a foggy and cool morning after sleepingin till 7am. Put on my old trakky dacks and top, until it warmed up. I did 3 loads of washing in our lemair
washer, it works very well. I also had to setup our clothes line and gently hammered a peg into it, to stop it being blown over. Marg and I buggered
around camp until the washing was finished and then headed into downtown Ceduna for a look, see.
First stop was the dump point that Tom reckons is here, we drove there, it wasn't there. Bad Tom. Next stop was the Ceduna Golf Club to organise how to play
the Nullarbor Links.
The procedure is:
- Holes 1 and 2 are at Ceduna GC, so go to the Ceduna Tourist Centre, pay $60 for a Nullarbor Links Score Card, go back to the golf club, play holes
(number 1 is a par 5 485m and 18 is a par 4 370m). Your scorecard must be stamped at each hole, mine was stamped at the Tourist Centre, so I can write any
score in for the first 2 holes. I think that I should at least play some holes, even though I haven't hit a golf ball for over 35 years.
- Hole 3 now drive or walk 73kms to Penong roadhouse. More details to ccome, when I actually get here.
So that should fun. Next stop was back to the Tourist Centre to pay my $60 and get my scorecard plus a few travel brochures. It appears that I may have
drama at Kalgoorlie GC, they have dress standards of NO denim, that could be a problem as I ONLY have denim.
so it looks like I maybe playing Kalgoorlie GC in my jocks, we will just have to wait and see. We aren't expected into Kalgoorlie for another 8 days.
Next stop was Foodland, a very new supermarket, so we restocked our food supplies for crossing the Nullarbor. Continued over to Thevenard to buy some crabs
and prawns from Baldy's fresh fish. Marg was hanging out for crabs, I wasn't greatly fussed with crabs, but I LOVE prawns. Anyway, Baldy's haven't
had any crabs for 2 weeks, unlucky marg, so we bought a kilo of prawns, and tonight we have Marg's world famous Prawn Cocktail, mine is served up
on a dinner plate. I will try and take a photo, 'cause it is bloody yumma.
Back at camp for lunch, I had tomato and cheese sangas, Marg had something, I can't remember what. While I am writing this, Marg is having a nanna nap and
I have the air con on, as it is warm to hot. One good thing about this beautiful weather is, that all our washing has dried. I nearly forgot, we have new neighbours, they have a 33 foot US 5th wheeler, it is bloody HUGE. wait to your see the photo of it against our little 5th wheeler.
I think that it is beer o'clock somewhere, so bye for now.
Tomorrow, I rip the Ceduna GC apart and we do more sightseeing in and around Ceduna.
