What day is it?

Morning campers, or afternoon!
We had another brilliant day.
For the first time in a very long time KB caught public transport. Yes people, I was able to get KB on the tram from Glenelg to Adelaide City Centre and what an adventure that turned out to be.

On our first day here we went for lunch at the pub and I ask for a West End Draught beer a common local beverage and they had none! I asked for a steak for lunch and they had none so that was not the best start to our trip, but, come the tram ride, just as we were on the outskirts of Adelaide the tram stopped and we waited.

Apparently there was a problem with the lights ahead and trams had backed up all through the main street of Adelaide. Did we panic? Nope not one bit. Our choices were simple, get of and walk a mile or sit in the air conditioned tram and wait patiently?
We waited and when the tram finally moved we were more than happy to wave to all those that had decided to walk or catch the bus they provided that hadn't arrived. All in all a good choice.

We went to the Adelaide Central Market I had been kind of bragging to KB that it was a delightful place, full of colour, beautiful smells from different foods with a fantastic atmosphere but stinky toilets.
Well I got everything right except the toilets were clean and didn't smell as bad as I had remembered.
We picked up some meats, cheese, tomatoes, pate and rolls then on our way out there just happened to be a bottle shop and of course with our supplies we also needed beverages to match. Chardonnay, Merlot and a case of West End rounded everything of nicely. The tram ride home was quick and uneventful.

Lunch was Serrano ham, New York pastrami, Kabana, Danish blue with Romano cherry tomatoes with Italian Ciabatta Rolls. Yum! Sorry no pictures because we for got! That was the royal we by the way, which means, I forgot! Although we maybe having the same again for lunch so pictures may still come to pass.

After lunch it was time to do the walk off lunch thingy. Instead of Round the Bays it was Round the Mariner at a pace more suited to a tortoise. Adelaide has put on some beautiful weather, not too hot and certainly not cold. The sea is a beautiful blue (like my wife's eyes) the sand is soft and white, the sky clear and the sea breeze very refreshing yet relaxing at the same time.

Back at the motel as we laid back, KB reading and yours truly on the computer a message from my youngest daughter popped up. She politely asked if she couple stop by. Having not seen the girl for 4 years how could I refuse?

Well me little darlings, it was as if we had never been away. Tarlee took to KB like a duck to water and the surprise was she brought her partner with her. What a treat!!!
For those that know Tarlee, when catching up with someone you haven't seen in a long time it has to be Bourbon o'clock time. So off to the Jetty Hotel for more drinking and debauchery.
We all had a great catch up, telling stories and exaggerating to the max. A feed of some delicious chips. (Gill you would have loved these. Far better than those cafe ones.)
All too soon they had to depart. We catch up again on Friday so saying good-bye was not to bad.

KB and I headed to bed at a more reasonable time that the night before 10:30pm NZ time.
What lies in store for tomorrow I am not sure. We are allowing cards to fall as they may and we are making choices that suit us. Being with KB is an awesome experience and I for one could not be happier.

Catch ya all tomorrow, take care and stay happy.
