The roadway was vegetated, surrounded by sheep grazing country. The terrain was flat.

The wind was forcast to be a crosswind and actually became a tailwind. 

A small deer ran across the road in front of me.

I saw this footprint on the sand in Coorong National Park and wasn't sure if it was a pig, deer, or goat. Now I guess it was a deer.

This fox was munching into some roadkill.

Someone had placed this old bike frame on the roadside in the middle of nowhere.

A big thing in Kingston SE.

Kingston has SE (South East) after the name to distinguish it from Kingston on the Murray. It is about 300kms north of here.

The beachside road has a light house. It is the Cape Jaffa lighthouse originally built on Margaret Brook Reef in 1868. It was moved here in 1975.

I had brunch and made camp. Then I had a little nap.

Later, on my way to the shops I met Dave. He is riding a Surly fat bike for a couple of weeks from Adelaide.

We chatted for a while and then again later at the campground. He has bike toured a lot in Asia.

There is a RV park in town that costs $15 for 3 nights. There is green grass and toilets. For some silly reason they don't allow tents.

I was tired and had an early night.
