Cairn to Adelaide, Saturday September 17, 2016

We were supposed to fly from Cairns via Brisbane to Adelaide, there was some problem with the Quantas connection, so they put us on a Jet Star flight that left at 4:30.  Needless to say, we spent the whole day at Cairns airport.  Not my idea of a fun trip.  But, eventually we took off, and found our way to Adelaide.  We got a cab to the air b&b where we were staying.  It turned out to be a very nice place but it meant that we arrived in the dark.

The next day, we got up early, (our hostess had left us supplies for breakfast) and set out to find a grocery store close to where we were staying.  On the way, we met a couple walking, and asked where the nearest grocery store was.  They were very nice, and they said they would drive us there, as it was nearby.  It turned out to be a small shopping center.  It had a Woolys, a drug store. a bakery, a deli/meat shop and a small cafe.  We really hit the jackpot,  We were able to buy food for the next few days.  It turned out to be very close to where we were staying.  We were staying in a suburb called Richmond, fairly close to the airport.  It turned out to be a very pretty area, with easy access to the bus service.

       This was my favorite tree I saw in Australia.  The flowers looked like a bottle brush.                                                                      Image result for images of Adelaide's bottle brush tree lined streets  Image result for images of Adelaide's bottle brush tree lined streets  Callistemon

  1. We know the Callistemons as Bottle-brushes too. They grow in much of the country and are beautiful things.
    I have a brother in Adelaide and a fondness for the City of Churches.
