Parked up at the Adelaide Tram Museum
I am sitting in the bus overlooking the sea and the boats in the Marina in Wallaroo SA, quite reminiscent of home; I could even get a bit homesick (or more homesick to be precise).
The view of the Prawn Trawlers through the windows of the bus

The weather is very wild and windy with a black cloud descending on us from above and the sea is very rough and choppy and I am very glad that I am tucked up inside   We left St Kilda today and travelled 120klms north west through very flat countryside, with hardly a glimpse of a tree in sight for miles and arrived here about lunchtime and set up camp at the Boat Ramp near the Ferry Crossing. 
Parked at Wallaroo
 The ferry used to cross near here but it has been inactive for some time and I am not sure if there are any plans afoot to reopen the services, so it is very good for us as we have the whole area to ourselves. 
The Grain Silos
 We explored the township earlier but will venture out tomorrow, may even go over to Kadina or Moonta for the day who knows.  We had a very refreshing couple of days with Pat and John at their Adelaide House in Ascot Park.  Had some very much needed retail therapy (Thanks Pat) much to Bill’s disgust?  We drove over to Brighton and along the beach for another look at a different part of Adelaide.  A few wines, scintillating conversations, and the added enjoyment of the lovely company of two very good friends and then on Sunday it was back to reality with the usual washing, ironing, packing up in readiness for the big move today.  Another farewell to more newfound friends and it was on the road again.  We have met some very nice people on the road and I know I will miss this companionship when we are back home.  A bit too windy for photos, today, as it is too strong even to keep the door of the bus open without it being blown off its hinges, so tomorrow hopefully will be a better day.
