With our fridge full of fresh fish we couldn't justify staying another day to catch more fish because we simply couldn't eat it all before it spoiled. So, although the day was perfect again we packed up and started our drive back up the Eyre Penninsula through Port Lincoln and finally stopped for the night in Port Augusta. We did a little sight-seeing along the coastline from Port Lincoln to Port Augusta such as visiting the Boston Bay winery (where the wife told us they were previously from Warriewood). It was a hot day and we drove with the airconditioner on. When we finally pulled in to Port Augusta we were nearly bowled over the heat and decided to pay for a caravan park with a pool where we spent the late afternoon. We marinated our fresh fish in garlic, lemon juice, chilli, ginger, fish sauce and soy sauce while we played a few hands of Yahtzee. We started playing Yahtzee, Greed and Connect 4 in Windy Harbour WA near Pemberton and have been hooked ever since. We left home with these select games but haven't used them until now. I guess we really have slowed down. Anyway, the BBQ fish was exquisite and luckily we had just enough lettuce and tomato to scounge together a salad. It was 39 degrees during the day and it dropped to only 34 degrees at night. It was such a hot night we slept with the car wide open but there was such a strong breeze that it almost blew our car over (well, I said almost).
