Living on Hindley street we had to walk 10 minutes to Rundle mall where all the shops and the city centre is.
We booked a 1/2 wine tour to Barossa valley then headed to Glenelg beach, well.... at least we took the tram to the only
station with Glenelg in it, Glenelg east. hhahahah we had to wait 15 minutes for the next tram to take us all the way to
the beach at Moosley square.
waiting for next tram at Glenelg east
Well it was worth the ride, Glenelg beach was nice
It was very vindy, but we went for a swim, and with sand in our eyes, ears and everywhere we tried a mexican restaurant
and Sangria. Sitting at the restaurant we saw the sky went all yellow, so beautyful,so we went back to the beach to take
Sunset at Glenelg beach
Today its Friday and tonight we are gonna meet Vivi and her son Charlie :-) We took a walk along Torrens river on our way
to take the Barossa Wine tour with Enjoy Adelaide. The river was polluted so there where no activity like pedal boats or
The wine tour was nice and we tried a lot of different wines, both wite and red from 3 different wineries.
In the evening we where picked up by Vivi and Charlie and went for dinner, they took us to an australian restaurant
called Outback Jacks. Maria tried the crocodile and it tasted quite good, like a blend of calamari and chicken.
It was so fun meeting Vivi after 38 years.
Charlie is a great kid, not shy at all, so Henrik and he became friends in the car to the restaurant.
After dinner we had some ice cream before we went to the hotel.
The day after Vivi and Charlie picked us up for a day at the beach. This time we went to Henley beach.
Charlie went for the water and Henke joined. The surf board is a favourite toy of Charlie.
Vivi has made a delicious fruit lunch, strawberries, plums and water melon, yummie!
We tried a new ice cream company named Copenhagen this time which was really nice. We have to remember to look for that
in Sweden. Especially the one with mint and chocolate chips :-)
Suddenly there was two helicopters hovering just 100m away from us accompanied by an armada of boats.
Viv saw some fins in the water just some 50-75 meters from were we took a swim. Henke got a photo and it really was a
shark fin!! All the boats were there to hurd the sharks out to deep water again.
That was the most exciting thing on the trip, now it does not matter that we didnt see any big crock in Cairns.
