Mr Percival

When I moved to Australia in 2005, we travelled the east coast, from the Daintree to Adelaide. A favourite location was the Coorong National Park. We stay at the very same campsite, a short walk or a sandy drive across the dunes, leading to a log wild empty beach. Dolphins join us for a swim.


D2 had never seem Storm Boy so this seems like an appropriate time to watch it. There are tears when Mr Percival dies.

Onwards to Goolwa, Port Eliot and Victor Harbor. We go for a sail in my uncle's boat, up to the mouth of the mighty Murray river. The caravan centre in Goolwa does some work on our trailer brakes, with no notice. Regional mechanics seem much easier to deal with than metro ones. For entertainment, we check out our friend's blues band. Sadly no dancing in SA, so sit-down jiving only.
