6/25/00: Cold cereal (Kellog’s Just Right) along with our favorite mango/orange juice blend…breakfast in the camper.  On the road by 9:30 A.M.  on to Adelaide.  Lunch in the camper.  Missed one turn going into the city so Steve, driving with Darlenes navigational instructions, threaded his way through Adelaide traffic.  Wild ride!

South of Adelaide, we made our way to Normanville for a grocery stop, passing through towns with names like Myponga, Noarlunga, Aldinga and Yankalilla.  And not far south of Normanville we found a small caravan park in a delightful location: Second Valley.  It was winter here so most travelers are heading north to warmer climates.  Which left an almost deserted caravan park to ourselves.  Probably due to the fact it’s not tourist season, I think there were only 3 other campers staying here.  Loads of birds to serenade us! The Australian crows have a mournful almost crying call. And after a dinner in the camper we walked down to a jetty to view the magnificent stars in the southern hemisphere. It was a clear calm night and the bright stars looked like we could almost reach out and touch them. Wonderful views of the 5 star Southern Cross constellation or Crux (Latin for cross).  Great memories of this caravan park and small village.
