Streaky Bay Rest Day

Our rest day in Streaky Bay was highlighted by a visit by our friends John and Carole from Bendigo. They are travelling across the Nullarbor and then up to Broome. We had pre arranged to meet up in Streaky Bay. It was lovely to catch up and they were delighted to meet the rest of the START Foundation crew and have dinner with us last night.

We woke this morning to a beautiful sunny, calm view of Streaky Bay, a lovely spot to spend a relaxing day. The weather was a huge contrast to yesterday. After a leisurely breakfast, with washing done and bikes cleaned, it was time for lunch at the M’Ocean Café which overlooked the bay. Delicious food was enjoyed by all including oysters, abalone chowder, and seafood pizza.

This afternoon we set off on a historical walk of the town. Streaky Bay township is the centre of a large surrounding agricultural district, farming cereal crops and sheep. The focus of the town itself is the restored jetty, financed by many community groups and residents. The many plaques lining the side of the jetty are an indication of the many happy hours families and friends have spent on the jetty fishing, swimming and having fun.

We enjoyed a late afternoon scenic bus trip with Cam at the wheel, visiting Bauer Point and the whistling rock. This was a lovely end to a restful day.

Life is for living!
