Adelaide

We're in Adelaide for a few days. We came down here for Diane's Sister-in-law's 80th birthday. Upon arrival here, he heard that the dear lady ended up in Intensive Care in Warrnambool and is unable to make it to Adelaide. But our daughter Carol is, so we'll have another cultural weekend down here.

We had a very pleasant 2 1/2 hour flight on Thursday


Our hotel is right next door to the Adelaide Casino, so on Thursday night we went there for a buffet dinner and dessert.

Maybe I shouldn't have had the ice cream Sundae
This morning, we strolled up to Rundle Mall with a stop for Brunch at the local shopping centre. It is absolutely freezing down here which is weird as a few years ago when we were here it was 45 Deg C. I wonder if they have any 'normal' days down here.

The ever popular Rundle Mall
 The piggies are still in the mall, although they've moved. The pig artwork is called 'A Day Out' by artist  Marguerite Derricourt.
Oliver the pig loves eating oranges

 The Blogger insisted of visiting David Jones in Rundle Mall and I discovered this strange couple having coffee at DJ's cafeteria.

We then walked over a new bridge from North Terrace to the Adelaide Oval. A very pretty walk,

The Intercontinental Hotel where we're staying is next to the casino

The bridge ends up nowhere but over a waterfall

Our daugher Carol arrives tonight to join us. So more tomorrow. Maybe.
