July 19th
A morning of rainbows and showers.
 Very soon after we left our camp we found Shell Hill Reserve. There were several information boards so we now understand much more about the Shell deposits.

Oyster shell deposits in the Gravel pit

Despite the showers all day we have really enjoyed our drive through the beautiful farming countryside. We were lucky to see and identify a new bird (for us) On several instances Adelaide Rosella Parrots flew across in front of us. They are similar to the Crimson Rosellas we see in NE Victoria but they are not as brightly coloured.
Years ago we visited a wonderful Bakery in Nuriootpa. I have always remembered the German cakes we purchased at that time....needless to say we will enjoy German Cake for dinner this evening. The one we purchased is 'plum' flavoured.
