The weather turned bad today with strong winds that whipped up the sand in the camping area. We pulled down the awning and all potential flying objects and spent the day driving around the central parts of the Yorke. This part of the world is very dry, and the main industry today is broadacre cereal and sheep farming. The soils look poor but this area is actually one of South Australia’s better agricultural areas. There is very little water and no irrigation, and salt lakes of various sizes are common.
