Let’s see, nothing exciting happened on Day 2. The drive pretty much looked the same. Lol

Although there was a lot more green! We weren’t sure what the farms were growing, but the grass was surely a nice emerald green color.

I’d have to say the highlight of our trip so far has been Nathan and the absolute joy and the light in his eyes when he sees a herd of sheep coming up, especially when they’re close to the fence. This mischievous looks comes upon his face, a smile starts to form and he starts hitting the horn. The sheep…they look up, and race the other way. It is the funniest thing ever, because literally hundreds of sheep start following each other and race off away from us. Seriously, Nathan dies of laughter every. single. time.Image

If there are any sheep people out there whose farms we have passed along this journey, I apologize for my husbands behavior. Although, it is pretty darn “H” to the “ilarious!”

Highlights of Day 2:

We crossed the state line over into South Australia

I got to drive! (for about an hour, but nonetheless, I drove)

I put gas into the car while my husband slept. I think that was only the third time I have ever put gas into the car. (And yes, you have to hold the nozzle the whole time, there is no auto-fill clip to put the nozzle in, walk away and change your Facebook status to let all your friends know you’re “filling up.” Unfortunate, really.)

We actually did FINALLY pass a fruit/veg check. This time it was any fresh fruit & veg, well except my carrots. So there went the cucumbers and lettuce too.

We saw the giant red gum tree and a giant fake galah (a bird)Image

And we have come to the conclusion, that South Australian drivers are a lot nicer because they waved to Nathan more than the New South Wales people.

Our destination: Ceduna. It is on the southern coast of the state, and as the sun set the ocean and sky looked absolutely beautiful. But when the Best Western is secured, gated and locked 360 degrees around, this tells you a bit about a town. While it is a tourist destination, because most people stop along their cross country journey, most do what we did: find a hotel, check in, go get a fast takeaway dinner, eat in your hotel, then sleep.

And that’s exactly what we did!

This trip has been way too easy so far, it’s amazing.
