WEDNESDAY 6 DECEMBER     COFFIN BAY

We left camp at 8am, for the 50km drive into Port Lincoln.

After dropping Truck at the service centre, we had to fill in four hours, wandering around the town.  We did some shop browsing. Bought a new telephone handset and a cordless extension to match – at least we will be sure of having a phone when we get home.

John bought a new Harry Potter book.

We had lunch early – more to rest our feet than because we were really hungry.

Then did some supermarket shopping – not much, just what we could carry.

Truck was ready at 1pm.

We then drove around to have a more extended look at the town, which is clearly growing and seems very attractive. Drove out to the new-ish Marina Cove development – very upmarket!

We found a wholesale fish shop and bought some whiting.

Tea was hamburgers. Some of the magpies that regularly visit the van, begging, scored some mince, this time.

Maybe if we sing, there will be supper?

V phoned. They have bought twenty acres near Bendigo, with house. No power or water laid on, but there is a pet donkey! Obviously, she was thrilled.

Tomorrow should be our last day here, but it is so pleasant that we decided to extend for another three days. That really has to be the limit.
