Nov 3, 2013 - Edge

Today we went to Edge City Church with our friends Grant and Mirella. It was a great message by one of the pastors. One of his points was not looking back when you put your hand to the plough. The other good point was that he was basically talking about the fact that people expect God to be like Father Christmas and expect him to give them what they want and when they don't get it then God is bad. They forget that when Christ called people to follow him he did not have a place to lay his head. The church is so hospitable and as we were...

Nov 2, 2013 - Cavalia

We decided to book in for a couple of nights to the Adelaide Shores caravan park at West Beach which is one of our favourite caravan parks. Tonight we are going to see the show Cavalia in the big tops at West Beach. It is a show of horses. We booked the Rendezvous VIP package and we arrived there early for the buffet dinner. The show is absolutely marvellous and we enjoyed every minute of it. If you were a horse lover you would be in heaven. The acrobats and trapeze were modern and amazing and the choreography of the horses and the actors...

Nov 1, 2013 - Beach and dinner

The beach is beautiful and we walked quite a long way over the headland to Nuarlunga bay and watched some amazingly big rocks being dropped on the beach to build a breakwater. The pier is quite long and lots of teenage school children were doing different water sports and reef walking. It was quite fun to watch the girls screaming as they hit the icy cold water. It was another beautiful day and we walked back to Christies Beach and watched the life savers practising their skills. We reluctantly dragged ourselves away from the beach after...

Oct 21, 2013 - Adelaide

(Ben) Friday was a beautiful day and as we drove towards Adelaide we had some scenery to match the weather. Coming up the eastern side of the Yorke Peninsula there are points where the road is very close to the water and affords great views of the golden paddocks of wheat sloping down to the ocean's edge. Who wouldn't want to be a farmer there?! We chose the Adelaide Caravan Park because, as the name suggests, it's pretty close to the centre of town. After lunch mum and dad very kindly offered look after the kids for the afternoon so Sal...

Sep 8, 2013 - Day 4 Part 6

We made it! 1.30pm - and we beat Simon and Sarah - by 15 minutes! Woohoo! The driving did it! Interesting caravan park, it's right on the banks of the Torrens river and if there wasn't park construction going on across the river, it would be sooo peaceful! The only complaint is they're a bit skimpy on the brand of toilet paper but that's a small thing, really. The main thing is, it's close to the Convention Centre, so we'll be home really quickly.

Sep 8, 2013 - Day 6

We're off early today - the cold is still killing me, but the weather is actually getting better. We arrived at Seppeltsfield at 9.30 and headed around to reception where Chad met us. He took us into the tasting room and we had a wonderful coffee with him and told him about what we had found at Mann's Winery. What a wonderful man. And, thank you, Chad, for teaching us how to pronounce Wudinna! Then, we headed back to town where we went straight to Haigh's. Darn it! Missed our tour! But, we were able to pick up Mary's chocolate and some for...

Sep 8, 2013 - Day 5

Okay, today's plans went out the window. Yes, I have the cold. So, we're up to the local shopping centre for some cold tablets. Stu and I headed for the airport to pick up Dr Ann McCoy and some others, then we head off to the Barossa Valley. Neither Simon nor Sarah had been to Gumeracha or the Whispering Wall, so we went in that direction. What an interesting day it was. As we had promised Chad, we called into Seppeltsfield, but he had left for the evening. We'll have to see him tomorrow.

Sep 8, 2013 - Day 8

Up we were again early, heading off to the convention. Today, we were having lunch with all the others. I was looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I've given the cold to Sarah and she has remained in bed this morning. She'll join us for lunch, tho. Wow! What great speakers we had! But, lunch has been cancelled, so we've decided to go to Hahndorf for lunch as a team and then onto Beerenberg so we don't have to do it on the way to Mannum. We've just tucked away the awning as it looks like rain is on its way and Stu is sitting here anxiously...

Jul 25, 2013 - Adelaide

Terry and I went into on the bus into Adelaide. Photo taken was non existence as the weather was so bitter, we preferred to take the city loop bus - like our shuttle buses. Last time I was in the centre of Adelaide was in 1967 when I was based at Salisbury while serving in the Air Force.
