Day 18
Victor Harbour - Murray Bridge via Adelaide
After yesterday we were wondering if all the roads in South Australia were straight. Bacon wanted some twisty roads and had his helmet on early

we took off for Cape Jervis

Great to find a good road.
From Cape Jervis we followed the coast up to McLaren Vale to see the wineries and olive groves

We went through Chandlers hill, Coromandle valley, old Belair road to Adelaide then out via Millbrook to Gameracha, Birdwood, Williamstown then up to The Barossa valley Where the credit card took a big hit at some of the wineries.

the Roses at Grant Burge Estate

After buying some wine to be shipped home it was back to Williamstown, Kersbrook, Castanbul,Athelstone, Marble Hill Balhannah and on to Mt Barker for the night or so we thought.
At Mt Barker we were told that there was no accommodation so we decided on a quick blat through to Murray bridge.
This was a mistake as we encountered one of SA's Finest in a very cleverly disguised un-marked Patrol car.
After a short conversation we were back on our way with a much lighter wallet and going a lot slower.
Bacon had a few unkind words to say about the fine.

I think that the bed springs on the beds went before the Great War we had to make some alterations before going to bed.

found a new use for Andy Strapz

It was a big day but a great day and there are some great roads in South Australia.
Note to self when tired don't just think of the destination watch the speed especially on the Highway
