July 24th

We have had a great day starting with a magnificent sunrise. A few surfers were braving the chill wind to ride the waves. The camp ground is kept in immaculate condition which was a welcome sight after seeing so much rubbish left through the bush. We have explored the area around Ceduna which is a really neat  town with quite a bit of modern housing development. The Ceduna Port loads salt, grain, mineral sands and gypsum. Again we visited the Aboriginal Art Gallery where  artists were at work including talented young artist Beaver Lennon who we spoke to last year. He has had an exhibition in Adelaide this year and sold several large works.

Food Land was a focus for us today as I had not shopped for over 4 weeks. This was at Alice Springs..green vegies were bit scarce in the refrigerator. We also called at the Fish Processors and bought some King George Whiting for dinner and some prawns for entree..very nice change.

Tonight we are camped south of Ceduna in the Laura Bay Conservation Reserve. We are in a sheltered spot amongst the Tea Tree...the mosquitoes like it here as well! The warm day has been very pleasant...a pity to be heading east and south!
