Travels with the Winnie: Day 21

Not a busy day. We went to our local cafe for the first time in the morning.

We had lunch in the Winnie for the first time this week, then went to Port Adelaide, a bus and train journey of about 50 minutes.

Stephen wanted to visit the Maritime Museum. I just wanted to have a cuppa and wander around with my camera.

The town has many interesting buildings, but the overall effect is rather shabby and neglected. Cafes shut at 4.00 p.m., that sort of thing. The man in the museum had recently visited Perth and Fremantle. His view was that they needed a university campus in the town to bring it to life. Certainly Adelaide City benefits from having two university campuses (or campi) – I did check on Google. The city is full of young people wearing backpacks.

Still, Port Adelaide has character and the man said that Port Adelaide is an extremely busy port, very productive indeed.

Stephen noticed this sign, with the name of the ship, that he and his family travelled on when they came to Australia. The Ranchi.

The museum is one of the old stone buildings, typical of the area

Quite noisy traffic noise in this video.

We came home to an easy meal, reheating some of the food I cooked last night. I did a last load of washing (before we leave Adelaide Caravan Park), processed photos and videos for this blog, and then relaxed. Goodnight.
