shoes: Asics Nimbus 24 black/green

Plodded around the marina and out to Billy Lights Point, where the coastal section of Parnkalla Trail with views across to the national park makes up for the suburban streets required to get there (I always seem to find some dead ends within the marina). Then we packed everything up to leave our lovely townhouse, grabbed Boston Bean coffee on the way to visit my uncle and his partner living right on the foreshore at Tulka (I can see why they never want to move into town although both are in their 90s) after which we decided to lunch at The Fresh Fish Place and I consumed an entire pot of steamed mussels, which is never a time-efficient process.

The afternoon’s route choice to Elliston included visiting relatives in the cemetery at North Shields, walking on Tumby Bay jetty since it’s now 90% reopened after much fixing, and driving between all the little salt lakes (there was once an orienteering map of these) near Kapinnie, after patronising Five Loaves bakery in Cummins. I was last in Elliston in June 2007 with my parents after another Broccoli Hill adventure, and I don’t think much has changed here since then. Because even the pub’s closed tonight, G & I walked up to the roadhouse to get takeaway dinner, and remarked upon the contrast between its extreme quietness plus the lack of traffic along the Fllinders Highway, and our equivalent location on this same Tuesday night a year ago…camped behind the Travellers’ Rest Roadhouse on the Stuart Highway at Marla when everyone was returning from the Finke Desert Race!
