Port Lincoln to Elliston

 We have been taken it a little slower the past few days, we found a great little cove called Locks Well Beach where we stayed for 3 nights. The area was remote, no phone, no Internet and poor ABC TV reception only. The parking area was quite a hike up the cliff from the beach, the wind at night was extremely strong but the days were warm and calm, we loved it.

The days were spent riding bikes/scooter, walking the track and stairs down to the beach, playing board games, doing school work and cooking. The area was typical of SA desert country with no trees and only low shrubs offering patchy ground cover. The area was littered with shingleback lizards, it was not uncommon to see 2 or 3 within meters of the bus. They seem to love eating the little yellow flowers that grew around the place. They were no threat to us and seemed not to be overly concerned by our presence, however we did have to watch our step as often you would go to step out of the bus and there would be one at the door. We took many photos of them, some of which have been added to the album, this one in particular is our favourite

We are not sure where we will head to this afternoon, but we need to move on, Elliston is well signed to indicate they do not allow camping in the town limits. So I guess we will head out the high way and find a road side stop.
