Day 28: Wednesday 25th January

Port Germein - Bordertown

sunny 37 °C

"On the Road Again..."

One of us usually sings it when we first set off! We rode south bypassing Port Pirie. Then we cut inland at Nantawarra to Balaklava for morning tea. We travelled some lovely country roads through Owen and Hamley Bridge to Gawler, then through Williamstown to Mt Pleasant. Tomorrow is Australia Day and in Mt Pleasant the trees along the main street had been decorated with giant ribbons in green and gold.

Where's Wally??... er, I mean Glenn?

The weather was perfect for riding - in the high 20s, though as we rode further inland it got hotter. We found the roads to be very bumpy and Glenn's bike bottomed out a few times! We reached Murray Bridge and were back on the highway out of Adelaide. The wind was very strong and we were constantly fighting against it. We both had sore necks by the end of the day!

Just out of Yumali on the Duke Highway we came across this:

We stayed in Bordertown tonight. Our last night camping and our last in South Australia.
