Further along at the roadside fish stand I chatted with Shane and Sam and met Spot the dog (who is terrified of both firearms and cameras)!

I managed to get this shot of the handsome Spot before he climbed down to the floor of the passenger seat and hid behind the gear stick!

Some rugged Australian corrugated iron Coorong shack architecture!

 

On the road between Meningie and the beachside town of Kingston there is a detour to 'The Granites', on 90 mile beach as it is known. As you come up over the rise you are met by 150 kms of white sand and blue water.....breathtaking.

Glass beach, Robe. As ridiculous and shocking as this sounds, this particular beach was used as a rubbish tip decades ago. Yes, thats right, you rocked up with your car and tipped your rubbish directly into the ocean!! Doesn't bare thinking about! Today, some forty years later you can still collect tiny shattered bits of glass from the thousands and thousands of bottles dumped into this beautiful sea.
