We arrived in the Lincoln National Park, below Port Lincoln, surrounded by the Southern Ocean on almost all sides, near sunset.
We were able – amazingly on a long weekend during school holidays – to find a campsite with room only for one vehicle and one tent (ours), overlooking the sea, away from the caravan sites. This on the calm, protected northern side, away from the ocean.
Here are pictures of this wonderful place, taken over two days. - alas, again with jpeg effects in the sky
Industrious Pied Oystercatcher oblivious to sunset
Less industrious man, seemingly oblivious to lovely day
Even less industrious woman
Crystal clear water

and of Hooded Plovers

out on an ocean edge,
We missed out on the Southern Ocean wild winds, admired their work and the courage of plants, but were pleased not to experience them
We could not see any nest, but were yelled at severely by this little Oystercatcher, and so went elsewhere
Below, view, again, from our camp site after sunset.
