Day 4 – Adelaide (Victor Harbor)

Posted from Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Today we got some of the domestics done.  A bit of washing, drying and shopping.


Not far to the beach … just where that fence is.  I went for a bit of a ride there this morning and grabbed the geocache of the day.

Day 3 – Adelaide (Hahndorf, McLaren Vale, Glenelg)

Posted from Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Our first non-travelling day today.  Also my first day of non-work, which was also SMS and call free … bet that won’t last!

The plan was to go and have a look at Hahndorf and then do a few wineries around McLaren Vale before heading back to the van, and we pretty well kept to that idea although we nearly got sidetracked a few times.

A geocache in the morning saw the kids amazed by their first micro geocache, a berocca container embedded in the side of the steps leading down to the beach.  It took a bit of finding, but was found on the morning walk.

Before the day got away from us, we headed up into the Adelaide Hills to Hahndorf, past Grumpy’s brewery while thinking of Al.  If I’d known it was a brewery at the time then we may not have gotten any further … but alas we cruised in to Hahndorf.  Blake had been really looking forward to it but was a little surprised by it in the end. He’s interested in his German heritage, but was bemused to find that that boils down to a love of sausage and beer. I’m sure he’ll come to embrace the beer at some stage. 🙂
