At Naracoorte caves we went on a cave tour and saw some fossils including Thylacaleo and other Mega Fauna things. The next day we travelled to Adelaide. It was boring!!!! We spent most of our time at JAYCO getting the van fixed.
Then we went to Port Augusta and went to a van park with a pool – yay!!! It has been 42 degrees for the last few days. We went to see Wadalata Outback centre which was lots of fun!
At Baird Bay I went swimming with sea lions and there were pups as well. We could not go on the beach but about 6 came into the water. On the way back we saw a pod of dolphins and got to swim with them as well. James had a sea lion that kept on jumping into his face and I saw a pup playing with some sea weed and made eye contact with one! It was supper exciting and thrilling!!! A once in a lifetime experience.
In Ceduna I went crab fishing. We caught 8 Blue swimmer crabs off the jetty. We had 4 nets and James caught 2 in one net!!!! The minimum legal size is 11cm from one side of the shell to the other. Firstly you need a crab net and old (stinky is optional) fish, a long rope and a jetty or pier. Secondly you need to get a bucket full of salt water and about 3 hours of your time (that’s how long it took us and we were lucky). Next you need to wait about 9 minutes between putting the nets down and hauling them up again and you should have a good crab or two per haul. That is how you go crabbing. I discovered I do not like the taste of crab meat that much but it was exciting catching them.
