Oct 17, 2012 - Clairview

There was really nothing on offer at St Lawrence except for the free camp. We couldn’t get any TV reception, not even SBS. And the free camp was a bit of a dustbowl. We travelled half an hour up the road to Clairview and set up camp for the night. It’s a beautiful spot right on the ocean. We met some fellow caravanners and spent a lovely afternoon with them. Barry had a dip in the ocean after he peeled our crabs for lunch. Then it was time for our afternoon siesta. Oh, the pleasure of retirement! Home tomorrow……

Oct 26, 2005 - Salina - Camping on the beach

We stayed for just one night in Salina. A tiny little town with just a servo (petrol station), a cafe, school, police station (who know's why they need one) and a glorious beach. We stayed at a free campsite - of which they have many in Australia. We tried to rough it attempting to cook our dinner on a camp fire but then realised we had NO water, we couldn't build the fire so went to the servo instead..! It was all worth it in the morning though, as you can see from the photo.....
