Whitesnake and I were invited to a family bbq while we were in Adelaide. I'd already met some of his family, but it was fantastic to meet some more and they made me feel right at home. There are too many pics to post here so I'll just share some of the pics of us oldies :)
Whitesnake's brother picked us up and took us out for the day. Whitesnake is a big supporter of the Adelaide Crows and it was fun to visit their home ground.
We took a tour around Whitesnake's old neighbourhood and visited his Mum and Dad at the cemetery.
I've heard many stories or Whitesnake's time at the Midway Tavern so it was a real treat for me to visit and share a meal with friends and family. I even tasted the legendary Chicken Schnitzel with Diane Sauce.
One of the things I've loved about visiting Whitesnake's former home is meeting the people in person I have known via facebook. I feel like I know some of them so well already but it was wonderful to talk to them and see them face to face.
Now that Whitesnake and I are all settled in at home, I thought it was time to share some more pics from our holiday.
What I loved about where we stayed was how close we were to everything. Just walk out the door and you have a huge variety of places to eat, shops to browse through and the beach to enjoy. We spent most of the morning exploring Glenelg and enjoying the sunshine.
Another beautiful day in Glenelg. After a delicious breakfast at a local cafe, we crossed the road to board the tram. I've never been on a tram before, the seats were a little small and hard but the scenery was nice. We had almost come to the end of our journey when an announcement informed us of a delay. An offer was made to disembark to walk or bus the rest of the way but we decided to wait it out. Ten minutes later, we were on our way again passing the people who had elected to walk or wait fot the bus. I guess we made the right choice.
We arrive at Central Markets a short while later, buying some yummy treats for afternoon tea. Notice the name of one of the stalls?
Headed back to the Motel for a walk around the Marina and beach.
Back at the motel, Whitesnake received a message from one of his daughters asking if we were free for a visit. Once she had arrived, we headed to the pub for a snack and a couple of drinks. Was so lovely to meet her and her partner, I felt like I already knew her from our interactions on facebook but it was lovely to be able to meet her face to face.
After an early morning wake up at 4.30, Whitesnake and I headed off on our Honeymoon. The flight was pleasant, a light breakfast while we watched The Bourne Legacy. We arrived in Adelaide after a four and a half hour flight. The temperature was mild and the sun was shining, a nice change from the cold and rain we had left behind. There was a huge queue for taxis so we hopped on the bus. After a short ride and walk, we arived at our Motel in Glenelg.
I was famished (there's a 2.5 hour time difference so it was way past lunch time for me), so we headed out for lunch.
What I love about where we're staying is that it's a 2 minute walk to the small town and beach, so everything is really handy.
It was quite a long day and with the time difference, we were in bed by 6.30pm. A lovely day.
