Telowie Beach – back on the road again!

by on Apr.03, 2011, under The Eyre Peninsula

April 3, 2011

We left Mount Pleasant – finally –  in the afternoon of April 2, 2011. On our way to the Eyre Peninsula we stayed at a house of a friend’s friend and arrived in the dark. Hence the next day was our first day of actually traveling again .. hooray! 🙂

We woke up to a relaxed atmosphere and – after a lot of cold and rainy days in the Adelaide Hills – to a bright blue sky and a warming sun!

The little Doggie now known as Eric belonged to Inga and was a really cute little bugger .. we quickly became big fans and played around with him all the time.

Our first sight to visit was Telowie Beach. There we went to the wreck of the „York“ lying on the beach rotting to pieces ..

Telowie Beach itself is a lonesome and idyllic place. The mangroves are growing close to the shoreline and you can see Weeroona Island in the background.

On our way back we came across this brown fellow:

Datsun, LandCruiser and Brown Snake

Datsun, LandCruiser and Brown Snake

You better not tease this one because it is most likely venomous. I could not recognize clearly if it was actually an „Inland Taipan“ – it if was, it is the most venomous snake on the planet. *shudder*

Afterwards we went back on the road to Port Augusta – again! Must be a curse or something, we end up here every now and then. 😉 Some shopping and refueling later we took the Eyre Highway and then the Lincoln Highway. Passing Whyalla we decided to stop in Cowell for the night. We found no private spot to erect our shiny new tent, therefore we had a pretty uncomfortable night on our LandCruiser’s seats… not the best restart for our travels, but things will hopefully get better! 🙂
