It was beautiful weather on the weekend so we spent one day doing domestic things, and the next day getting out and being the tourist in our area thing.
I love being a tourist in our town. It was a bit of a drive from our place to the Whispering Wall at Williamstown but a lovely one.
I went to the Whispering Wall when I was in high school – so some time ago now. I had visions of it being an old stone wall. I don’t remember the dam at all. My, how time changes memories.
One of you stands at one end, and the other at the other end and the acoustics of the wall allow you to talk to each other. It’s really amazing. The trouble is you can’t think of anything good to say, so there’s lots of hallos, and, can you hear me?
We met some Ukrainians, and we were surrounded by other Adelaide visitors also. It must be in the guide books as a place to visit.
Williamstown is pretty too, and it had a market on the day we were there but we didn’t stop as we were on a geocaching mission.
We didn’t do very well with a count of one in four geocaches.
But we had a great day apart from one meltdown when JJ wanted me to stop on windy roads for geocaches and there was nowhere to park.
We ended up dropping in at a friend’s place on the way home, and then went to a nearby pub to listen to jazz music. Another friend’s dad plays in a jazz band which just happened to be playing that day.
We had fun.
It does sound like a wonderful day – and that whispering wall is awesome!
