Adelaide shopping

Adelaide, Australia

We went back to Adelaide city to have a look at what it had to offer for the retail therapists in the family. We failed miserably to find Rundle Mall only stumbling upon it at 4.30pm, Karen believes that Shaun was deliberately directing the family to the wrong side of town until it was too late to do any damage to the credit card! The weather warmed up a bit today and is back in the twenties, still need a cardie in the evenings though. We found a nice store which sells Aborigininal prints and the children both picked up a small print each (makes a nice change from cuddly animals say Mum and Dad). We headed back to Sarah's house and they all came over for a Barbie - the barramundi was delicious! The children have been getting along really well (most of the time!), and it has definitely helped having Sarah's children around. Sarah, Andrew and the kids left at around 9pm, and Shaun and Karen sat down to an old episode of the Bill.

Adelaide Zoo

Adelaide, Australia

The kids decided that they wanted to go to the zoo today so we headed back to the city again. We had hoped to see Panda's but it seems their enclosure won't be finished until the end of 2009. Chris and Sally got to feed kangaroos in the children's zoo, and enjoyed looking at all the animals. The zoo wasn't that big but is undergoing a large revamp so will be really great once that is finished.

We headed out of the city to Port Adelaide and encountered a rather strange Aboriginal woman who was less than amusing! The town itself is also undergoing a lot of development and will probably look totally different in 5-10 years. We drove along the coast back to Glenelg and passed some really nice areas along the way. Henley and Waterside were really pretty with lake or ocean views. We stopped at The Buffalo restaurant which is a replica of one of the first migrant ships from England, after a huge dinner we were allowed to explore the rest of the ship which had been turned into a museum.
