Marion Bay

Processed with VSCO with a8 preset

A few weekends ago I made my way down to Yorke Peninsula, to a little beach side town called Marion Bay. I tripped down with a group of friends for a fishing weekend.
So as you can imagine  I drank nice wine and played board games instead I spent the weekend eating the freshest fish.

I’m kidding, I did some fishing…does sitting on the jetty  drinking in the dark count while the real fishers caught and beached a shark?
Maybe not. But in all seriousness it was a great weekend.

Marion Bay, specifically Inneston National Park, was just so untouched and uninhabited. It was a great place to “get away from it all”. As any good weekend away should be, it was full of spontaneous drives to random locations and tourist attractions. And that’s how I ended up at the Inneston Historic Township on a very interactive audio tour in a very odd English accent thanks to one of my friends.

Near the township we came across Inneston Lake. It was not your average lake. It was an extremely light blue colour and was almost luminescent, like no water I have ever seen before. Although the remains of the township were a little eerie, and in the middle of nowhere, the off-road exploration is worth it just to see this lake.

After all this exploring our nights were spent relaxing with wine and the best board game EVER, Settlers of Catan – yes my inner nerd likes board games. Do not underestimate the amount of fun a board game and a few drinks with friends can bring! If you like Monopoly but prefer a little more strategy and differentiation from game to game then I suggest you get yourself this game.

My favourite part of the entire trip had to be on the last day, hiking our way down the cliffs to Gym Beach. Taking with us some of the smoothest red wine, our plastic cups, and iPhone speakers. An afternoon spent relaxing and dancing on the beach – the best way to end any trip.
