Mar 4, 2013 - Relaxing day in Adelaide

Today we had a very relaxing last day in Adelaide, a little bit of shopping and getting ready to leave tomorrow and head towards the Yorke Peninsula. I have uploaded a couple of sunset photos from the caravan park tonight. Have also uploaded a photo of the damage that Ian did in his motor bike accident. It wasn't as bad as they initially thought, but it still doesn't look that good. We have spoken to Ian today and he is doing OK.

Mar 3, 2013 - Clipsal

We had a very early start to the day today because we decided that if we go to the Kiss concert after the race we may not be able to get home because of their great public transport system. Got to the circuit and settled down for a long day. The racing started at 8.45am. it became a very hot day. We had a great day but because of the heat and the long day we decided that we would rather go back to the caravan park and have a swim and if we felt up to it we could go back to the Kiss concert later. This didn't happen as we were both very...

Mar 2, 2013 - Clipsal 500 V8's

Our first real day of racing at the Clipsal, it is late but i have managed to upload a few photos of the 1000's that we have taken. A really good long day. Tomorrow we need to be up early and it is going to again be a long day as we hope to be able to take the car into the races as the public transport in Adelaide is terrible and we will need the car as we are going to the KISS concert after the races, and there is no public transport. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT !!

Feb 28, 2013 - Clipsal 500 V8's

We left Rapid Bay and headed to Adelaide, arrived here at 11.30am. Set the van up and as Steph was still not feeling the best I had to go into Adelaide to pick up the Clipsal tickets. Went in via public transport which was an interesting experience for me, but I got there. (Coming home I got on the wrong bus but after a wee bit of a walk I got back to the caravan park.) Went into the circuit to check where our seats were and what was around us. For anyone who watches the race our seats are in the Grandstand opposite the pits (Barry Sheene...

Feb 21, 2013 - Caravan Show Adelaide "again"

Well, home safe and sound, we made it. We saw a fantastic Retreat Van, Brampton, with all bells and whistles, and great price for what it was,($76,000) one minor change was all it needed.... EXCEPT for the Ball Weight --- it was 220kg, too heavy for the Pajero..the ball weight is the major consideration, even though we can tow up to 3 tonne, and ball rating is up to 250kg, if the load is ATM is 2.5 - 3.0 tonnes, then the ball weight will drop to 180kg. And when looking at vans we have had no luck with the ball rating on the ones we like,...

Feb 20, 2013 - Caravan Show Adelaide

Well, we found our way to the caravan show. Some really lovely vans on show, but only one so far we both like. And one I really liked, but it was of course too expensive for me (us)($72,900) and we still would have to spend more. Next best (as per photos), Love the leather and the light colours in this van, $62,990 but extended to $67,700 with extras to match up to our Jayco ie Solar panels and extra battery and annex plus.. Hold that thought...;-0 lol... We did not actually have the time to buy the list of items that I have which would...

Feb 19, 2013 - Renmark to Adelaide

Well yesterday was a very restful day in Renmark, we stayed there as I had the car booked back in to sort out the pump on the long range fuel tank. Unfortunately they had the car from 8.30am until 5pm before it was ready, so as the temperature was 40 deg YES 40 deg I stayed in the pool or with a wee drink in my hand, nice and restful. Today we headed off early as we are booked back in at Adelaide for two nights as we are going to the caravan show tomorrow, so anything could happen !!. We had a nice trip down from Renmark to Waikerie,...

Dec 16, 2012 - Adelaide & Surrounds 16/12/12 to 20/01/13

Saturday 22nd December A Walk from Richmond to Glenelg Ruth and I drove to Brighton on the coast, parked the car and proceeded to walk from Brighton to Glenelg, a walk of approximateley one and a half miles (round trip ~3 miles). Brighton is a small residential seaside town with many expensive properties and has not been spoiled by over commecialisation. Glenelg, north of Brighton is a more expensive area with hotels and many classy restaurants. It is served from central Adelaide by a tram service which runs every 15 to 20 mins. It...

Dec 15, 2012 - Melbourne to Adelaide - Australia

15Th December MELBOURNE TO ADELAIDE We travel by the Overland train of Great Southern Rail to Adelaide to be met there by Helen. We left at 08.05hrs and arrived in Adelaide at 17.45hrs 15 mins ahead of schedule. The journey was very similar to our train ride from Sydney to Melbourne travelling through a vast plain largely occupied by wheat fields and sheep and cattle. However the scenery changed dramatically as we approached Adelaide. The approach is through the Adelaide Hills by way of Mt.Lofty and Bel Air. The hills are quite forested...

Dec 4, 2012 - Half-Day Birding Tour in the Adelaide Area

We spent the day birding with Adelaide area guide, Peter Waanders. We had contacted Peter the day before. Because we had picked up so many birds in Melbourne and Deniliquin, there were only a few that he could get for us. These happened to be birds that were not easy to get. We first went to Black Hill Conservation Park, which is part of the Greater Mount Conservation Parklands, near Adelaide. We climbed a really steep hill to get to where the birds were. We saw the Chestnut-rumped Heathwren and the Elegant Parrot. The parrot was an...
