Snapper Fishing Comp & Fishy Fringe Festival

Here we are again, still in Whyalla, and will be for another week. The Snapper Fishing Competition is on here over the Easter weekend so things are really buzzing. We went down to the foreshore this morning and at that time the biggest snapper caught was 13.85kg, not a bad size. The lowest in the top ten was over 10kg. They also had the Fishy Fringe Festival on today. There were markets, Clydesdale Horse rides, Helicopter rides and lots more. We didn't seem to get much further than the Mettwurst Stall, it smelled absolutely divine and DH purchased some to take back to the motorhome. Some of the other Motorhomers are also in the Lions Club and were manning a stall selling oile boles (probably not the correct spelling) they were like a doughnut consistency with apple and sultanas deep fried and coated with icing sugar. Very nice but not very good for diabetics. We spent the rest of the day visiting friends and having Happy Hour as some of us are moving on tomorrow. We will be moving to another spot to join some friends who are in the HF Radio Club, hopefully DH will learn how to use his new radio.

This is a photo of Bill doing the washing. He says he doesn't know what we women complain about, washings not hard. He sat there while the machine was going chatting to everyone that went past. I pointed out to him that we usually do other things while the washing is in progress.

Talk again soon
