Two Days on Yorkes A quick Jaunt to Innes National Park

Michael and Sue invited us for a quick trip to stay with them at Marion Bay.

They told us that they had taken their bikes, so we grabbed a couple of the trusty Treadly Bike Hire Bromptons so we could all go for a ride.

It's a bit of a boring drive, so it's good to have an extra pair of eyes on the road.

It's easy to forget just how beautiful the coast is down there.

There's a bunch of trails developed on Yorke Peninsula under the aegis of "Walk the Yorke". We decided to do a short section from Stenhouse Bay to Inneston.

Inneston was a gypsum mining town in the early 1900s. The gypsum was pulled out of the (usually) dry lakes. These days some of the ruins have been restored into holiday accommodation.

There's a rail trail walk back to Stenhouse Bay along the track used to haul the bagged Gypsum to port.

We left the bikes at the other end, and then rode back to the start.

As well as this little jaunt, there was lots of time for walking on Willyama Beach next to Marion Bay.

A deserted beach and a tennis ball are pretty much heaven for Charlie.

He also liked an early run with me riding behind on the Brompton.

A lovely couple of days away.
