The day after New Year’s Day JJ and I packed up the car yet again, harnessed Monty and off we drove to Victor Harbor. We managed to get the one way joke (the Southern Expressway) which makes the trip a bit quicker but the bit after that’s usually a pain in the ass because of crappy drivers. There’s also a really high incidence of fatal car crashes which always makes me a bit nervous about impatient drivers. We were lucky this time.
A part of the drive is a really long and reasonably steep hill. My little car starts off at the speed limit (100kph) at the bottom of the hill and three quarters of the way up it’s down to 80kph. This meant that I saw the turnoff to a lookout which I spontaneously took.
I’ve never stopped at this lookout before but I was obviously fairly relaxed and in holiday mode and not in a real hurry to get to our destination, hence the stop.
I had my camera with me too and as I haven’t been taking many photos lately I thought it was time to remedy this.
The photo below shows the coast on the horizon, around Port Willunga way.
JJ loves collecting the seeds off the weeds you can see in the foreground. I got him to throw them up in the air.
Can you spot JJ?
Today I was reminded of being a tourist again when we popped down to Glenelg to purchase a few things. I used to live at Glenelg and hated Jetty Road being so crowded on a Saturday morning when all I wanted to do was buy the paper and an iced coffee. I’m very glad I don’t live there any more. Visiting a touristy place like this is fine but not living there is good too.
