Continuing our tour by car from Adelaide to Port Augusta, we stopped at Port Broughton for lunch. It is a sleepy little tourist town on the Yorke Peninsular and the east coast of the Spencer Gulf. It used to have a train which loaded grain onto Windjammer ships for England. It is an agriculture township.
I loved the old architecture of the hotel. It overlooked the Gulf.
The view was good.
The seafood was nice too. Helen ordered prawns, they were different.
After lunch we drove on to Port Pirie famous for lead and zinc smelting.
The railway no longer exists here but the gorgeous old station is now a Museum. I was fascinated by pictures in the museum of trains running down the main road.
Just as we were leaving the town Ann spotted this interesting old shop. We pulled over and took a closer look.
The door was shut but was displaying this poem.
