Coober Pedy to Port Augusta
Port Augusta Travel Blog› entry 14 of 23 › view all entries
The road started out very boring but the landscape changed slowly which saved us from extreme boredom. During this part of our trip we actually travel through the Woomera prohibited area which is where a lot of ‘testing’ of ‘bombs’ happened back in the 50’s and 60’s, now part of it is used as a detention centre for illegal immigrants and refugees, how appropriate.
As we arrived in Port Augusta the rain appeared and it stayed around the rest of the day and night. We went to do a bit of shopping and I cooked an easy meal for us. After dinner young Jordan wanted to show off and finally began to crawl, although it was slow, she found great delight in following us around the cabin and would sit up and giggle infectiously.
The next morning we had to find a doctor and get a sore on Reagan’s leg seen too, it seemed to have become infected. What started out as a mosquito bite had been scratched so much it had become a sore and Reagan was in a bit of pain. We didn’t look forward to a long wait in a doctors office, but the staff were very responsive and had us in to see the doctor after about half an hour wait at 9 am which we didn’t expect. A trip to the chemist followed to fill a script for antibiotics and we were on our way to Adelaide.
