Day 265 – 5/2/2020 on a Midlife Adventure
Just out of town there is some rocks that apparently look like haystacks in the distance.
These are called Murphy’s Haystacks as the land owner was Mr Murphy.
Its a nice walk around the rocks and they make interesting pictures against the barrenness of the land around them. They used to be below the ground but with the soil moving on and weathering of the stone they have developed these interesting shapes.
Following the dirt road back towards Streaky Bay, SA you go past the church and an old building long since deserted in what appears the middle of nowhere.
Driving further on you come to the amazing views of Beards Bay where I stopped at the foreshore.
The water laps quietly at the shore in this very deserted part of the country.
Moving along the Point Labatt Road you get to the Seal Bay lookout where you can see Australia’s largest mainland group of Australian Fur Seals due to the safety from predators
From here I saw a couple of young lads somehow at the bottom of the cliffs doing some fishing and hauled in a massive fish which they took some pictures of before releasing it… well done guys!
So I continue my journey back into town and get prepared to move on tomorrow and head further down the coast on this Midlife Adventure.
