Saturday's post, a bit late due to no internet availability then - I didn't even have mobile phone reception...

I drove up to Jamestown on Saturday, I really enjoyed the drive. I took this photo while I was taking a break from driving - I found that after a while I just had to stand up!

I haven't done a lot of country driving in the past but given this weekend's experiences I may just have to do more. I went up as I was asked to go to the Ram'n'Ewe ball in Amy's absence. Beforehand we went to a Soiree in an absolutely stunning house. The Ball itself was very loud but quite fun, the dancing was great and the people friendly ... so good despite the extra-noisy campsite while I was trying to sleep. It was more of a dance-in-a-giant-shed than a ball so I was a little overdressed, but that didn't really matter. The band - the door snakes - were very good if you ignored one or two lyric changes they made (I will never be able to hear a certain Ronan Keating song quite the same way ever again).

It was, if nothing else, quite an experience!

After a fantastic bacon-eggs-and-everything-else-too breakfast and a spot of geocaching in Jamestown I started heading back towards Adelaide. This photo is taken along a road in the Bundaleer area where I was doing more geocaching - shortly after I took this panorama shot I took a walk all the way to the very top of the hill in this photo. The view up there was spectacular but photos just don't do it justice. I can definitely recommend the climb though! It's not as bad as it looks - there's a path part of the way up that isn't too steep and the rest of the time I walked along the ridge of the hill. A bit longer, but not nearly so steep!

After finishing up caching in the area I continued home, stopping for two more caches further on, to visit a cellar door and to take a ride on a miniature train at the Hobbies Alive festival in Clare - I saw the signs as I was passing through town and thought it might be fun to check it out. The train in question was a fantastic replica of the old Glenelg trams. There were quite a few other trains including one absolutely stunning little steam engine which had stopped to top up on water and coal while I was at the station. The drive home was beautiful - the weather was much better than yesterday and it made the drive a pleasure. I must do this again...
