American River

Our last two days on Kangaroo Island we stayed at a caravan park in Penneshaw.  This park was not a good one.  We plan to post a caravan park ranking sometime soon.  We also had a rough night getting bitten by mosquitoes!  We did go on a nice walk in American River nearby though.  It was a well marked hour and a half long hike through bush along the water.  It ended at the ruins of a fish cannery from the 1890s.  The most interesting part was seeing the oyster leases where oysters are feeding below.
We stopped at The Oyster Farm Shop for a little snack on the way back.  We shared a dozen of the chili and cheese oysters.  It was a seafood heavy day because we also had fish and chips or prawns and chips in Ben's case at Fish, a highly regarded restaurant in Penneshaw.  I had the KI King George Whiting.  It was a tiny piece of fish but quite delicious.  Next up the Barossa Valley.
