Perhaps once or twice I may have mentioned how much I love Rapid Bay.
I personally believe this part of our coastline is a somewhat forgotten treasure with so many people opting for more commercial places to visit on the weekend within that 1-2 hours drive radius around Adelaide.
The first time I explored the western coastline of the Fleurieu Peninsula from Sellicks Beach down to Cape Jervis and around to Deep Creek I was taken by its rugged beauty and minimal human development. The imposing Kangaroo Island across Backstairs Passage and the Pages jutting out from that treacherous waterway completes a magnificent seaward vista.
I am so lucky to have such a beautiful part of the world so close to home. Too bad I spend most of my time there underwater!
