Thursday 17th May - Victor Harbour to Kingston

Victor Harbour to Kingston
Packed up, and left the park by about 9:30 this morning.  Another lovely day, weatherwise.  We decided to go inland rather than along the Coorong, so we went via Goolwa, by-passed Murray Bridge again and headed for Keith.  We had lunch at the Keith Roadhouse.  Bill had an open steak sandwich, which was enormous.  He said it was very nice.  I forget what I had.  We saw the Jeep on a Pole, and the big water pipe, both landmarks in Keith.
We arrived in Kingston about 2pm, and located the Kingston Caravan Park. No en-suite sites, but they did have disabled facilities - trouble was we didn't ask about them and later found that they were at the other end of the park, in their own block, and we could have had a site right next to them.  Ultimately it didn't matter, although it would have been nice.

We got set up, then had a quick drive around the town to see what was what.  Looked like there was a couple of interesting shops to look at tomorrow.  Also took one of Bill's prescriptions to be filled at the chemist.  We had to come back for it tomorrow because they had to get it flown in (from Adelaide?)
Decided we'd go to the Royal Mail Hotel for dinner.  I was a bit disappointed in my meal.  I ordered stir-fry chicken with cashews and hoiken noodles.  Unfortunately there wasn't a cashew in sight!  Bill was quite happy with his meal.
