3 Aug 2011 - Bound for Hawker

Without any surprise we awoke to yet another cloudless, sunny morning, a bit fresh, but promising another fine day.

Di, Dave, Sharon and I strolled up to the resort restaurant for a cooked buffet breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns and tomatoes (don't tell anyone but Davo also snuck a snag under his bacon). None of this was paid for up-front, it was left to our honesty to pay for what we ate after we'd finished.

Today was our departure day from Wilpena Pound so all three vans were packed, stacked and ready to roll in  no time at all. Quick look and stock up at the general store/cafe/souvenirs shop and we were off with a staggering 56km to drive today. What a hard life!

After setting up, and too early for lunch, we wandered over to the fresh fruit and vegie stall in the main street. It sets itself up every Saturday at the local petrol station. Oh what a joy to be able to purchase something fresh! Since the day was hitting 31deg we walked the block and a half back to the caravan park to prop for the afternoon.

Because of the temperature, "beer-o'clock" came early today.
