It was here we encountered our first problem of our trip. The *Anderson Plug from the Caravan to the back of the vehicle was broken, having come out when turning a very sharp corner. So a trip back up the road some 20 klms to find an Auto Electrician who would fix the problem straight away. We were very lucky, done in 20 mintues so off we went back down to have lunch at Willalooka.
*Anderson Plug carries power to the battery in the caravan and also for the breaks for the caravan.
Way back up the road we had done 14,000 klms (8,700 miles) thus far on this holiday.
After lunch we drove on and came across a Park in honour of Father Julian Tenison Woods who was the Catholic priest of the Penola Parish in the 1860s and with the Blessed Mary MacKillop, they formed the Order of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.
In his role as parish priest of the south-eastern district of South Australia, Father Woods was able to combine his devotion to God's work with his interest in science and nature.
This area of land on the original Limestone Ridge Station was a favourite stop-over during his travels across his parish, and he could often be found preparing sermons, celebrating Mass and rejoicing in the splendour of his natural surrounds beneath the shelter of the towering River Red Gums.
In Father Woods honour there are 7 tree stumps with carvings of people on them.
I did take photos of the 7 carvings but only showing a few.
Father Woods and Mary MacKillop who now is a Saint.
Next to the Park there were some grape vines.
You can see where is Penola on the map, it's the last black circle. We were next heading for Port Fairy in Victoria.
