Fleurieu coast

This collage shows scenes from the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia
(which happens to be my favourite region of our State)
 
The top 3 shots and the larger one are of the Petrel Cove area, while the two right hand coastal scenes are of Waitpinga Beach - a popular fishing spot 
(being images I've posted previously independently)
 
The memorial plaque reads:
 
"In memory of Harry and David Sheridan of Hindmarsh Tiers who were tragically killed when their Tiger Moth aircraft VH-AML crashed into cliffs approximately 10 kms west of here near Newland Head, while searching for a man presumed missing on
 Saturday 13 July 1957.
Also in recognition of the courage and determination of their families left behind and the generous support given to them by the residents of the surrounding districts during the years that followed.
 
Erected by the City of Victor Harbour and unveiled by the Hon. Dean Brown MP on Saturday 13 July, 2002 "
 
 
Linking up with, and thanking our host of,  Mosaic Monday

Hi Valerie
I enlarged the mosaic but the text is still too small to read unfortunately. The coastline in this area is beautiful, it must be fun to fish right on the beach!
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.
