|Wow! What a busy couple of weeks. Last weekend Maya and I took it easy, Friday evening was the Family BBQ at school....complete with face painting, cotton candy (fairy floss), a rock climbing wall, bouncy castle and of course BBQ. Saturday morning was a walk up Waterfall Gully, around Cleland and back down again (2.5hr). In the afternoon, Maya and I spent a lovely afternoon in the historic town of Hahndorf near here. German settlers came years ago and the flavour of the town remains the same. The buildings were beautiful and the town welcoming. Sunday we had an artsy day driving around the hills on unknown roads, with basically no idea where we were...stopping to take pictures when the moment called for it. When we tired of the adventure we just plugged 'home' into the GPS and good ole Tom got us back. This weekend has been a whirlwind, it's a long weekend...and it's been busy. Friday night was the footy game with the Mitchells. I could easily be a footy fan, it's fast, it's impressive and the uniforms don't cover too much....so you get to see the muscles! Saturday I was on the trails of Belair National Park, with Penny, for our 2 hour Saturday morning (7:30) walk. It was beautiful...I didn't feel like lugging a camera so there are no pics. Saturday afternoon we headed to Melba's Chocolate Factory in Woodside. YUM! Saturday evening I had to take Maya to a friends for a sleepover birthday party, in Mount Barker (about 15 mins from here)....so decided to go to Laratinga Wetlands to have a look around since I'm taking my class there on Thursday on our way back from the honey farm. Wow it's a bird watchers paradise. Saw tonnes of new birds. I also met this older fellow named Kevin. He's an avid birder and has been involved with the wetlands since it was created, I believe in 2000. It's a man made wetland to filter runoff. Anyway, he showed me all sorts of birds and offered to show up Thursday afternoon (provided he doesn't have to drive his mate to his cancer treatment) and give our class a guided tour of the wetlands. By the time I got home I was ready to curl up with my book and go to sleep. Sunday morning (7:30) the girls and I went for a 2 hour walk on Henley Beach and then went out for coffee and breakie. Sunday afternoon had to pick Maya up. Then Sunday evening Penny and I went to Womadelaide which is a big, weekend long music festival in the city. It was alot of fun. My favourite show was the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain - what an entertaining lot! Now it's Monday and I think we may head down to Rundle Mall (outdoors) to see some busker like entertainers....and possibly a BBQ at Penny's later in the day.
