Top End 2003 - Port Augusta to Ceduna
 

We were out of the caravan park by 8am and on the road. The weather was pretty miserable, overcast with showers threatening. Out of town and we were on the start of the Eyre Highway that would take us back to Western Australia. We passed the Stuart Highway turnoff, were we had just come from, then the Lincoln Highway turnoff to Whyalla and Port Lincoln which is a scenic, and longer drive, around the Eyre Peninsula.

We passed Iron Knob, which is a town that supports the big Iron Ore mine, where the ore is railed to Whyalla for processing. The countryside from here became more scenic through farming country and passing through towns such as Kimba, Koongawa, Kyancutta, Wudinna, Pygery, Yaninee etc. We got a few decent showers coming though this area, which slowed us down a bit.

Finally we were at Ceduna. Kylie had never been here before, however I was here late last year to view to Total Solar Eclipse. Last time I stayed at the Foreshore Caravan Park, however we decided on something a bit more secluded, the Shelly Beach Caravan Park, some 4 kms out of town. The park was small (21? Sites) however the park was immaculate and the owners extremely friendly. The toilets were more like the toilet and shower in your home than a caravan park.

We took the dog for a walk along the beach, which was directly over a sand dune behind our site. It wasn
