I have returned from my 10 days in Adelaide. It was an unusual trip in that I didn't visit friends, go into town, saunter down North Terrace or browse Ikea. The weather was horrible so I did what I set out to do - spent time with Mum. Saturday was Election Day. Dodging the rain, I walked to Mercato. My new rule is that I walk to Mercato unless Mum is with me. I was tempted to photograph the queues waiting to vote on Payneham Road but settled for this:
On the Sunday Mum and I drove to Macclesfield to have the tapas lunch at Longview Winery. It had been a while since I'd been there so I allowed 2 hours to get there. We got there in 38 minutes which I still can't believe. Fortunately there is a market at Macclesfield every Sunday. The market is nothing to get too excited about but it has a cafe attached which is warm with amazingly cheap food and shelves of books. Naturally we didn't want to spoil our appetite so just had a peppermint tea and a cappuccino in the company of bikies, tourists and locals with some delightful children playing with a thoughtfully set up toy box. Then on to Longview
I walked to Marden a number of times. The river and overflows got wilder each time.
I saw the Christies Gang a number of times. Tamasin and Willowa came with us to Port Elliot and The Flying Fish.
