Zeb, Eider and the humans have one more day to explore and enjoy Kangaroo Island. We are staying at the Mercure Resort here.
From the Mercure, we follow some trails around the resort grounds.
Kangaroo Island has a shortage of fresh water. This is part of the first desalination tank.
Desalination is the process of removing salt from the ocean water so the water can be used for humans and landscaping. From our trail, the views are wonderful.
We can see the ocean also.
You will notice that our resort is not in the cold, windy part of the island. Flinders Chase National Park, that we showed you the last two times, was beautiful, but the wind was very strong. Along this path, we enjoyed resting on this bench.
A little more walking took us past this old stone house
and to the beginning of another trail.
We loved this old equipment, once used on Kangaroo Island.
From the trail and road, we watched these black swans swimming so gracefully.
Back at our resort, this is where we enjoy our breakfast buffet.
The dining has this indoor portion
and also an outdoor seating section. On a chilly evening, we enjoyed the fireplace near the bar.
The swimming pools are very nice and the view of the ocean from the pools is wonderful also.
We do want to tell you that you cannot rent a vehicle on Kangaroo Island and there are no taxis. If you want a vehicle, you must bring it on the ferry with you. Also, it is best to make all tour arrangements before you arrive on Kangaroo Island. We were there in their winter, but we did not have tour options once we arrived, so be sure to plan ahead.
We really did enjoy Kangaroo Island and hope you visit the island if you are in South Australia. However, we are taking the ferry back to Adelaide now.
We liked Kangaroo Island, but more adventures are waiting for us.
