Day 147: Rest day

I was pleased to find the city was very quiet early this morning.

I went to a camping store to buy a few more tent pegs as I've broken and lost a couple since Perth. 

Perhaps Pepper the Pig escaped?

I went to the SA Museum. A friend I met on the shark cage dive recommended it as she knew the curator of the Aboriginal exhibition. 

It was the best Aboriginal exhibition I've ever seen. There were so many artifacts with lots of examples and different variations from around Australia. 

These spears are from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
