The weather has deteriorated over night. We have had showers and a strong breeze to travel through today.
The mallee country interspersed with green cropping pastures has added colour to our day. Two distinctive bushes in bloom..a wonderful Wattle as well as a pink flowering bush which I think could be a Boronia.
Our route has lead us south-east to Streaky Bay then north-east to the Eyre Highway.We are settled into a camp spot in the Gilles Conservation Park just off the Eyre Highway. The mallee scrub is all around us.
The weather has turned quite freezing this evening. I think it is carrying snowy weather to NE Victoria for the weekend.
