It's all about Dad and his golf

Mum really liked the caravan park at Ceduna(Shelley Beach caravan park). She said the facilities were excellent. They even had a wood-fire oven! I’m giving it 4 paws out of 5 paws.
Mum and Dad wanted to head off early (their kind of early is 9.30am) but they were having trouble with the fridge battery. Dad bought a big battery for the fridge so that when the fridge was in the car, it would be run by the battery and everything would be nice and cold. But the battery wasn’t working properly and Dad was really angry at the battery and at Mum, but of course he wasn’t angry at me even though I just sat in the back of the car and watched him hit the battery a few times (Does that really work?)
Finally at 11am, things were sorted out and we were off! First stop: Penong Roadhouse where Dad played the third hole.
Hole 3: Windmills Penong Par 4 260 metres (Shots: 4)
Then onto Nundroo Roadhouse where we stopped for petrol ($1.63) and the fourth hole.
Hole 4: Wombat Hole Nundroo Par 5 520 metres (Shots: 5)
We reached the Head of Bight (Great Australian Bight) at around 3.30. You can see whales from here but we were about a month too late. Mum and Dad did walk along the boardwalks (I wasn’t allowed to go). The gates closed at 4pm, so Mum and Dad had only a quick walk around (and still got charged $10 for the experience Mum grumbled)
The last hole for the day was at the Nullarbor Roadhouse.
Hole 5: Dingo’s Den Nullarbor Par 5 538 metres (Shots: 7)
Mum and Dad had decided to do a free-camp so Mum looked up a place in one of her many books she brought with her and she decided to stop at the Bunda Cliffs Lookout. When they arrived there were about 6 caravans already so they squeezed themselves between two caravans. They weren’t sure if they were going to put the trailer up or we were going to sleep in the car because it was quite windy. Little did any of us realise how windy it was going to be! They did put the tent up and then we went for a walk to see the cliffs.
It became even more windy after Dad's cooked curry and by the time we went to bed it was almost a gale. I hate the wind. It is too loud for me. The tent flaps so much and I just find it scary. I kept pacing up and down the tent and I could hear both Mum and Dad tossing and turning. None of us slept well.
