Hackney, Adelaide, SA
The photo above is the General Store at Redhill where we paid our $2.00 for last night. We had a very peaceful night, keeping snug and warm in our bed until it was time to get up. We put the heater on and had cups of tea in bed until it went from 2 degrees to about 12. I didn’t test the temperature in the bathroom, it was warmer there.
We went for a walk before leaving.
This garden at Redhill had been decorated with all sorts of things, coloured handkerchiefs and hats in trees, dolls, flags and fluffy toys, etc. Too many things to mention. Someone went a little crazy, and the overall effect was very interesting.
It seemed a particularly easy day of driving today. We made frequent stops, and still arrived here at about 3.00 p.m. We set up, did two loads of washing, put a meal to cook in the pressure cooker and went for a short walk around our local area. There is a cafe in one direction and rather nice pub in another. Where we are staying is quite upmarket, it seems odd to have a caravan park here, but nice for us.
The novelty of having normal running water and power is hopefully enough to make up for being back in a city. The facilities are very clean and attractive and we are looking forward to having showers. We will still have to brave the cold to go outside the Winnie. As I’ve hung washing in the bathroom there isn’t much room to have our normal washes.
It looked like the weather would be changing to being very wet, but latest forecasts predict possible showers in the next couple of days, not too bad.
I accidently gave my script for medication to the staff at Regis when I was giving them Mum’s scripts. They gave it to Marie and she has kindly posted it here to the caravan park. We are booked for four nights, but can stay an extra few days to wait for it to arrive if necessary. Stephen is planning all sorts of things for us to do here in Adelaide.
