Cowell to Tumby Bay

After the Whyalla Wetlands, I headed south down the Eyre Peninsula to Cowell and then on to Port Gibbon where I camped for the night. Next day it was on to Arno Bay where I went for a wander along the Mangrove Boardwalk at Salt Creek. At the moment I am at Tumby Bay listening to some noisy Musk Lorikeets gorging on some eucalypt blossoms.
