I write, read, travel, garden, renovate, work, drink coffee - all the usual things. My lovely partner often accompanies me, and of course my constant companions, two feisty terriers, are never far from my side. We live in and enjoy South Australia.

Roads of Fun for Nomads, History-lovers and Nature-lovers
The history-laden Copper Coast is popular with Caravan and RV travelers of all sorts. If you're keen to avoid the commercial tourist parks, it only takes a little research to find safe and quiet places to park with near-by facilities in most towns.
This well treed, large flat site is located in the triangle formed by Blyth Tce, Henry St, and Moonta-Wallaroo Rd. Only two blocks from George St, the main street of Moonta, it is an easy walk to all facilities. The above sign indicates direction to an RV waste dump spot.
George St, Moonta boasts cafes, shopping, banking, antiques, clothing boutiques, shoe shops, book shops, bakeries, sweets shop, hairdressers, art gallery, cinema, and the green and shady Queens Square.
Or if you are looking for some dirt roads and unsullied coastline, follow the Moonta-Wallaroo Road out of town, where it becomes Old Wallaroo Road, and keep on going!
Look to your left after you have left Moonta behind you to choose a rough sandy track that heads down to the coast. Please remember the coastal sand dunes and vegetation are fragile and native animals are living in their rightful home, so do no harm, and take lots of pictures!
In Wallaroo there is a less scenic stop located on Cornish Tce, at the intersection with Wildman Street. As the smaller sign says, the Wallaroo Rowing Club will be happy to charge you $10 for overnight use. Perhaps this includes a key to on-site facilities.
