Weekend at Yangie

A long overdue post...

The long weekend in October we went camping with friends to a little place called Yangie, near Coffins Bay South Australia. Yangie is located in the Coffins Bay National Park.

A friendly Emu brought his family along to visit our camp.

Unusual tree formation at the top of the hill near our campsite.

Another visitor was this friendly Kangaroo. Our son went to the toilets, rounded the corner and there was the kangaroo, he couldn't believe his eyes. He had never come face to face with a Kangaroo before. A pleasant surprise...

And of course we got bogged on our first trip out and had to be pulled out the sand!! This spot has been renamed Phil's corner by our friends...

Lots and lots of beautiful, juicy Quandongs (wild Peach)

Sensation Bay...
Named after a tuna boat that run aground. Read more about it here

Sheryl, Lyn and I.

There were huge sandhills along Seven Mile beach.
Great for trying out the sand board...

Old plough near the Rangers hut...

Gorgeous scenery...

Lovely clean surf and fishing beaches....
Crisp white sand....
Sleepy lizard (shingleback), made from tin...

Tunnel of love...

Some bush cricket...

See why we want to move to this lovely area.

Good company, great scenery, lots of fun and laughter, what more could we ask for?

I do hope you all have a great weekend,
