Coorong

Coorong , originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

As the weather had been hot in Adelaide, mid 30’s+, we decided to take the coast road, the Limestone coast, we had no idea what to expect but it is turning into a delightful drive.

First night we stayed at Meningie on Lake Albert, one of a series of lakes fed by the Murray just before it reaches the ocean. These lakes have been so low due to the drought one person in the van park, who comes regularly from Adelaide to spend time here, told us you could almost walk right across a few months ago. Now due to flooding in Queensland it is now full right to the banks and you could swim in it from the van park.

We had stopped for groceries in the village and parked next to us was a family of aboriginals. Jack got talking to the elder of the group and he told us he was a relation of David Unaipon, whose portrait is on the $50 note. He also told us of an aboriginal cultural centre to look for on our way out of town.

That evening we went to the Old Cheese Factory restaurant, which is right next to the van park. Their speciality is a sea food platter for 2 at $39 and featuring Coorong mullett, the delicacy of this area. It was delicious with a glass of wine…

It was a beautiful evening watching the sun go down over the lake.
