Vintage Car Run to Arno Bay, South Australia

Last weekend we went to Arno Bay to meet up with my parents. They were there for a get together with two other Vintage car clubs.

For all you South Aussie's, Arno Bay is the home of former

Adelaide Crow ruckman, Shaun Rehn. A nice quiet little seaside town on the

Eyre Peninsula, on route to Port Lincoln.

There are lots of pictures here, it was hard to pick the best.

Firstly some of the vintage cars that were there.

And now some of the sites around Arno:

Some Cormorants (or Shags as we know them) on the pontoon.

Along side the jetty with the waves rolling in along the reef.

I am heading down to Adelaide tomorrow with our son and two daughters for our friend and Auntie's funeral. It could be an interesting trip as I don't usually drive in Adelaide. At least I have my eldest daughter with me, she lived in Adelaide for ten years while attending University. I am sure between the lot of us we should manage to get around okay without any mishaps. I am afraid I am a country girl through and through and dislike the city. We will travel down tomorrow and stay overnight in a caravan park. The funeral is Monday afternoon and we will travel home again afterwards.

Wishing you all a blessed weekend,



  1. That beach looks so lovely Tania. Glad you had fun at the car rally. I am a country girl too and not at all enthusiastic about driving in the citys. I have done it but rather not. Take care. Marilyn xoxo

  2. Hi Tania

    The car rally would have been very interesting, all those different makes and models.
    Hope all goes well in Adelaide - I know that city traffic is daunting but just try and relax. Thinking of you,


  3. Lovely photos, Tania. I must get over your way some time.

  4. I am sorry for the death of your sister in law.

    My husband and his father have restored a 1926 Delage.
