It’s Australia Day

A week or so ago after we walked through the Festival Centre Plaza in Adelaide we made our way down to the banks of the River Torrens and hired a paddleboat for half an hour. I haven’t done this for a long time and JJ has never done it.

The swans are very friendly, probably because lots of people take food to feed them. They were disappointed with us, however, as we had no food.

If you’re not paddle boating on the Torrens you can go on one of the Popeye’s for an hour’s cruise.


It was a lovely day and Adelaide can look quite pretty and inviting sometimes. This is looking towards the Festival Centre.

It’s Australia Day today which means a public holiday for most people. I’ve made some lamingtons – a traditional Australian cake (my first ever batch) and we’re off to an Australia day barbeque later. Tomorrow is my first day back at work after nearly seven weeks. Sob.
