Kimba-Chocolate & Patchwork Shop

Map showing Kimba

We left Ceduna about 9.30am after fueling up and we hit the Eyre Highway on the way to our next destination which is Kimba. Halfway across Australia. We lunched on fresh oysters at Minnipa and arrived in Kimba mid afternoon. While we were checking out the area we met a fellow traveller. His name was Dennis and he hailed from the same town as us in West Aust and a very good neighbour of our dear friends Merv and Irene. They were supposed to come on this trip to Whyalla also but had to pull out at the last minute. I rang Irene to let her know that it was a small world and that we had met their friend. Bill had to mend a tyre on the trailer so I wandered through town. It is a lovely small town with some quirky features which we will photograph tomorrow. But guess what!!!!!I found a patchwork shop!!!!!

One of the sayings perhaps I should hang it on the bus.

I had to access it through the hardware Shop (as you would). It was a minefield inside wall to ceiling fabric and knick knacks. I found this panel of Chocoholic sayings, probably could get it in WA but hey!! It was so me!!Cause everyone knows I love Chocolate.

Speaking of chocolate I'm not very impressed it is at least $1.50 dearer over here, I may have to ration my supplies.

Too true!!

LOL I also found in the local IGA a giant powderpuff, I actually got a little nostalgic thinking of the girls at their sewing day at Prue's House today. I felt a little overwhelmed and we have only been away a week and 1 day.

Talk again soon
