7/10/01:  Along our drive as we headed toward Port Pirie (our targeted destination for tonight), 5 emus stood very close to the road.  It took me off guard, as most have been much farther removed from the road.  Emu!  Emu!  Emu!  Darlene shouted…she gets excited about wildlife. Pictures were a must!  It was a rainy day, and a good one for traveling.  We stopped in Port Augusta and tried to look up some e-mail acquaintances…but did not have any luck.  By late afternoon, we were in Port Pirie, found accommodations, mailed our last package, and walked along the shore of the bay, picking up a few seashells.  The rain continued throughout the day.  Supper was had, more seafood that we bought at the fresh seafood market right along the pier…and why not! Barramundi if I remember correctly.
