Port Augusta... prawn cocktail WTF?

Port Augusta, Australia

The next morning we were very excited to get on the road and get out of the Nullabor roadhouse and the desert in general. Although we did note that at every gas station you could at least get your Long Black or a Cappuccino, no matter how removed you were from the rest of the world. We were up with the sun and drove all day long. We managed to make a few stops along the way, mostly searching for bathrooms and to top up on caffeine. The finger puppet made reappearance in the morning, to spread good cheer to all of the other drivers on the road. We started the tradition of the finger puppet early on in the trip to say hello to all the other drivers on the Nullabor. As you pull onto the highway in Norseman every driver goes out of their way to wave to you, although the wave is often only a one-finger raise off of the steering wheel. SO, to add a little more glam to our waving we decided to spice up the one finger wave and create a character to say hello to the folks. The farther along the highway the less and less people wave, but we tried to keep the tradition alive each morning with a new character!

That night, being right on the ocean we spent a good hour looking for a quality seafood restaurant. Now, by quality we mean Red lobster or better. We struck out and ended up at a fast food seafood joint where we got a small ‘secret sauce’ covered Prawn cocktail. The little snack was alright, just totally not what we had our sights set on. Settling into Port Augusta, we were officially off of the Nullabor and on our way down to Adelaide and South Australia!
