Hello Adelaide!

We continued west along the southern shore of Australia to the city of Adelaide.  This was being a problem child for us.  The outskirts around Adelaide is big wine country.  Most tours involved a day of wine tasting and that is not how we wanted to spend our time.  Finally a tour came up and we snatched it up.  

We started with walking tour in the center of town.  Everything was closed up as it was Sunday morning.


We visited the Cleland wildlife park, where some of the animals roam free and you can feed them.
Below was the floor of their shop and restaurant.

Of coarse, there were koalas.  You could stand in line to stand beside one and pet it.  Lauree was waiting to hold one.

Emus are interesting birds.

Loikeets are so colourful and look like a rainbow in the sky when a flock fly overhead.

Cape Barren geese.
There were dingos here

We headed to Mt Lofty where you could have an overview of the entire city.

And we did make a stop at a winery.  Their wine was not that great.
Look at the colour of the water!  Unbelievable!

I spent the werkend at a scrapbook retreat.  I finished Cait's book on her high school trip to France. That was a big accomplishment.  And started a mini album on a 2009 cruise I had photos just sitting around.  
Today was busy- changed bed, washed sheets and towels.  Kirsten and I did some yard work.  Went to the grocery store. Cleaned bathrooms.  Picked up Harlee and soent time with the grandkids outside after school.

Great to see your photos of places I have not been.....when you want to see the country side stopping and spending time at all the winery's would be a little frustrating. Fabulous photos of the Grand kids....enjoy! Hugs x
