Last Days In Adelaide
Teri and I spent some our final time in Adelaide checking out downtown Adelaide's Central Market - a large farmer's market/fresh produce market; and Rundle Mall - a long pedestrian stretch of outdoor shops. Teri posed with the well-known shiny silver "Mall Balls". I really wanted to get some pictures of some old churches in Adelaide city but the rest of the group was not agreeable, unfortunately. Right Steady?
I was also able to visit the old ball diamond and get inside the Port Adelaide Magpies Baseball clubhouse and was happy to see that very little had changed in 14 years! There is a new mural of the team logo on one of the walls, though, shown in the picture along with Darren and myself.
Teri had her first crack at playing beach cricket down at Semaphore Beach, and we had a great feed at the Exeter Hotel while Steady soundly kicked my butt at billiards (seems to be a theme there!)
Everyone came down to the airport to see us off before our flight to Christchurch, New Zealand on Jan 3rd - Rod, Anna, Darren, Leanne, Jack, Brooke, and Cherril. It was an emotional goodbye as none of us know when we'll see each other next, but we had a fantastic visit between December 22nd and January 3rd, and made up for a lot of lost time. We have to send out a tremendous thank you to Rod & Anna who hosted us the entire time, and to Stead family including Cherril for going out of the way to make our visit so fun and special...we love all of you guys!
(And hope to see you all again soon...!!)
