We arrived Friday and have had a great time looking around Adelaide again. We have not been here often but each time we come we like it more. We are staying at the Lakes Resort Hotel, at Westlakes.
Conveniently positioned about 20 mins from the airport, right on the rowing section of the lakes and across the road from a very favourable Westfield Shopping Centre. Favourable because it has shops that we want to go into and food too. Everything one would need within walking distance of our digs.
We arrived at about 11pm and checked in. It was great to be back, we like this hotel and love the quiet and the view. Its lovely in the mornings when you wake to hear the sounds of oars in the water. The synchronised slapping, and pause and dig and glide and dig and pause and so on – very rhythmic and pleasant. The light this morning was beautiful.
On Saturday we went to the Adelaide Central Markets and were blown away by its size and the variety of the stalls. There were a few vege stalls which then creates a little competition which is good for the consumer. Bought some beautiful, cheese, home made beef jerky, and some fruit. Took a few too many photos but it was worth it. I loved the place and wish we had something of this ilk in Perth. I’m sure a central place with parking on top would be a great addition to our city. Especially now that there are a plethora of apartments in the city now – and everyone has to eat!!.
The main reason we came to Adelaide was for a wedding of our dear friends Kala and Jackie, who had a fantastic ceremony and a lovely day with their friends and family.
We also went to Hahndorf and surrounds.
At the end of the weekend we returned our cute little Suzuki to the airport and bumped into the newly weds. We then whisked them away into the Qantas lounge where we had a chance to chat for a while. It was lovely.
