2010-12-24 Around Fleurieu peninsular day 3

3rd day was a full on day, haha but blessed with a pretty sunny day. We drove all the way down from Adelaide to Newland Head Conservation park along the coastal road. Who said the South Australia beaches are not as pretty???!!! then please judge for yourself with my photos below. In fact, i reckoned some of these beaches are better if not on par with the other beaches at the other parts of Australia. It's just that there are not heavily promoted in SA tourism and best known by locals!!! Looking back, those photos made me wana go kayak at these amazing waters!!!

We stopped by Port Willunga, Second Valley, Rapid bay and then did a "shouldn't do" drive to Tunkallila beach on hilly dirt road. This road was steeper and longer than what i thought. Thank god my friend was patient with me, haha. Though driving for such a long distance just to get to a beach on a dirt road with lots of small pebbles did give me a creep since the car was rented. All those thoughts started coming into my mind, i didn't pay extra for any accident, so i drove slowly and it just seems to take ages until we finally see the edge and the beach!!! I dare not drive down, haha and it's steep walk down (kam ngam tak kam qiu i stomach ache, aiks~!!!!). Then we visited parsons beach, setup our tent at Park 1st before we set off for the Starhill windfarms!!! Seeing the those turbines so close was one of the highlight!!! Though there wasn't a good sunset, but we were very happy with how the day turned out!!! 

Port Willunga

How I wished I was him with my kids and pets enjoying the crystal clear beach on a sunny day!!!!

Overlooking Aldinga beach

Sellicks beach

On the way to Yankalilla
Bay of hays!!!

How I wish i can lie on those flowerbed!!!

On the way to see the dam at Myponga!!! That Green tree is so eye catching isn't it??!!

Myponga Dam, looks like somewhere in Canada isn't it??

Second Valley
It's actually a very hot day!!! Hiding behind the big rock to have some snack or lunch??!! haha

Rapid bay

Really love this rusted old bridge!!!

Wish I have a farm like this, my own livestock, haha. Though it looks pretty harsh to survive here!!!

Tunkallila beach

I wanted to come here to see the cliffs, but turned up I have stomach ache, arghhhhh!!! End up I didn't walk around :(

I love how the BLACK cows created another sharp contrast with dry grass, sea and skies!!!

Always wanted to play with these grass hay and on the way back from Tunkallila beach, I can't help but to allow myself to act like a kid, haha. Best of all, it's just on the roadside without fence!!!

My friend here must be tired, haha or acting mature to contrast my little kid act, haha.

Setting up tent at Newland Head conservation park

Starhill windfarm

I guessed the photo indicates that I'm very happy to see the windfarm so close!!! haha

Got back in the dark driving through some short cut through deep creek conservation park.
Time for dinner and zzzzzz. 
Tomorrow is another hard day L O L!!!!
