We spent Wednesday night at Coffin Bay, which was really lovely. It was our first night in a national park without facilities, except for drop toilets, and everything in the van worked well. I was even able to have a hot shower. We walked up to the Yangie Bay Lookout before exploring the rest of the park and setting off for Streaky Bay. A taste of things to come – 300 km of straight road and fairly unvaried scenery. We have a beach front site at Streaky Bay, a few metres from the water, and we can here the swooshing of the waves. Very soothing. There are lots of pelicans here and they are pretty relaxed so I have been able to get quite close. They are truly magnificent birds.
