Days 14 - 15

sunny 32 °C


Day 14 – In Adelaide
This morning we took both vehicles and drove into Adelaide City. We parked behind the Adelaide High School. It was a bit of a long walk into the city centre.
We walked to the Rundle mall and found some pig statues so had to take a photo or two.

There are a lot of lovely old buildings in this city – Adelaide Arcade and the Museum included.2014_Mar_2..aide_Museum.jpg2014_Mar_2..aide_Arcade.jpg

Lunch was next on the agenda then Pommy Bob went back to his car to go and visit his friend at the hospital. After walking around a bit more, we collected our car and drove up onto Mount Lofty and visited the Botanic Gardens there. This is a relatively new garden only started in 1977 and features plants from cooler temperate areas around the world.

Back to the van for a late afternoon tea. (4.00pm).

Day 15 – In Adelaide still
This morning we all went in Pommy Bob’s car to Port Adelaide and while there had a good look around the Sunday Markets but didn’t purchase a thing although there were many interesting items for sale.
Pommy Bob climbed up into the Port Lighthouse for a look around.

We walked around the historic precinct and there are some lovely old buildings here.

Back in car we drove to the coastal town of Glenelg which was crowded. There were many eating places here so we had lunch before going for a walk out onto the pier.

Having overstayed our parking time we hurried back to the car and drove to Brighton for a look at the beach and pier there as well as to have a huge ice cream each.

After all of that it was time to head back to the caravan so that Hiroe could do some washing before we leave here tomorrow morning.
