We took our time heading out of Port Lincoln along Flinders Hwy and stopped for lunch with a view at Elliston a few hundred kms past Coffin Bay.
On the way was an amazing ocean cave in the middle of nowhere called the Woolshed, lucky to have it to ourselves.
Another gem was discovered near Streaky Bay, a campsite literally on Perlubie Beach. This picture perfect setting resembled a secluded Balinese hideaway, it was complete with its own private thatched roof shelter...
...with a slight twist. The locals offshore boat ramp!
Neither of us will forget our time spent here, not only was the scenery to die for but with the help of two crab nets (thanks Pykey!) and another lovely couple from home, Rob and Rhonda, we managed to catch more than 20 blue swimmer crabs.
With a little preparation we shared a memorable dinner together.
Cactus Beach near Penong, home to a few famous surf breaks was our next port of call. The onshore wind messed up the surf but was a kitesurfing and cliff-walk opportunity not to be missed.
After checking out the jaw dropping coastline, dining on our kangaroo steaks (Jens first)...
...and mingling with the locals...
...we spent the evening with another young couple 'coasting around', Steph and Guy from Singleton.
Before edging onto the Nullabor we spent one more night beachside. Our new besties Steph and Guy left camp a little earlier and after a successful 'reckie' found the beautiful and remote Scott's Bay.
We spent the afternoon fishing and munching popcorn (thanks Steph) then bunkered down together for the windy, rainy night ahead.
Armed with beer and board games (awesome combo) and sheltered by the sand dunes, we survived the storm and were excited to see the sunshine the following morning. "oh what a feeling"
The peninsula has been incredible, we now prepare for the Nullarbor.
