Coffin Bay, SA

A view of Coffin Bay on the Eyre Peninsula. Coffin Bay was so named by Matthew Flinders in 1802 in honour of his friend Sir Isaac Coffin.

The oyster beds. Coffin Bay is famous for its oysters Australia wide. We had a dozen unshucked oysters for $7.50 for lunch. It is just as well I have been training myself to get to like raw oysters

I just had to take this shot of the view at our free rest area in Camps Australia 4.

We are now on our way to Healesville for Christmas so the pace of travel has to pick up a little. The rest of SA will have to wait for another time. Had another excellent coffee at Coffin Bay.
