The night had been a windy one as well as some heavy rain drops at times. Chris and Sue had packed up their camper trailer early when it had been dry and with the wind blowing very heavy, I was in no hurry to get on the road. We bid Chris and Sue farewell as they would find it easier to travel in these conditions while we waited for the wind to abate somewhat.
About 1/2 an hour of waiting and we starting making moves with the plan to take some back roads through to Naracoorte rather than hold up traffic on the main roads as I was not going to be moving very fast in the wind. As it turned out it was the right decision with hardly any traffic in either direction. We had a couple of heavy downpours and a bit of wind.
The lunchstop was Padthaway where we contacted Chris and Sue to find that they had only just made Bordertown after being held up by 4 lots of roadworks on the main roads.
By the time we had finished lunch, the wind had abated and we could go normal speeds up the Dukes Highway for the remainder of the journey home.
This adventure had come to its conclusion. Now to prepare for the next one – whatever it may be.
