True to my word I’m continuing on in Tumby Bay again this week. Tumby Bay has great fishing, great beaches and a marina. It is also only a short drive to the agricultural areas.
H10 trying to find the beach with a GPS (why she isn’t just using her eyes….)
The kids probably ruined a whole micro-eco system by collecting a whole heap of periwinkles and then putting them back in different rock pools, but it kept them occupied for nearly an hour.
Tumby Bay from the local lookout…
Just outside of Tumby Bay we saw this pile of dirt. Do you think it looks like John Lennon having a little lie down?
Back home again to check out the weather. Its still hot. I haven’t shrivelled up yet. South Australia is sweltering itself through a record heat wave. We have just experienced our 8th day in a row over 40C (104). Wednesday it reached 46.7C (116F). Adelaide has experienced similar temperatures, but they have had power outages and electricity rationing – so there have been numerous deaths (particularly among the elderly) attributed to the heat.
The January totals: In the month of January we had no rain at all. Our hottest day was 46.7C (116F) and our coldest day was 26.4C (80F). The average maximum temp was 35.3C (95F)
Monday 2nd Feb. Max Temp: 40C, Min Temp: 22C, Rainfall: 0mm, Days since rain: 51
