We spend a chatty happy hour with a chap who along with his wife has been on the road for a year. They are now looking for somewhere permanent to settle down as they no longer wish to return to their home in the Sydney suburb of French’s Forest. He calls it French’s Apartments. His conversation gets us thinking, if you had to choose another place to live where would it be?
Then we met another chap in Streaky Bay who said that they came to Streaky Bay and never left. “It’s the community.” He said. We found that there was no vet, the nearest probably Ceduna 100kms away and no auto electrician, the nearest probably at Port Lincoln a distance of nearly 300kms. Perhaps Streaky Bay is not for us, but then what price can you put on a caring community?
