Kangaroo Island & Barossa Trip - Apr 2011 - Day 2

The weather wasn't great a bit drizzly in the morning when we were packing up so we really appreciated the Kimberley Karavan. One of my pet hates is packing up wet canvas - no canvas on the KK.

We drove to American river where we found our first Pelicans.

Then in to the metropolis of Kingscote. Nice little town with very friendly people.

Kangaroo Island is typical of many island communities there is a strong local cohesion but a welcoming of visitors on whom the local economy relies for much of their income. We had a similar experience on Norfolk Island 5 years ago.

We went to Stokes Bay via Sheps Studio. We liked Shep's artwork. Certainly worth a look. Find him on Flickr.

The trip to Stokes Bay was via Emu bay but Emu Bay camping ground was a bit too open for our liking. Whereas the camping ground at Stokes Bay was more secluded and the place more interesting.

We had a coffee at the Rock Pool Café not bad at all for off the beaten track.

In the morning we went for the very short walk to the beach. To get there you have to walk through this narrow gap in the rocks.

But the beach is beautiful on the other side
