Out and About – Adelaide

After a gentle breakfast at the hotel, we walked just across the road to pick up a tram.  When we asked which tram to take at the hotel, we were told “there’s only one tram” 😊😊.  We decided we would take the tram to a little town called Glenelg, which was about a 30 minute ride from our stop.

Nice ride down, giving us chance to see parts of Adelaide, as well as the suburbs.  It’s well worth it, and a fun experience.  I just enjoyed looking out the windows, watching the Adelaide world go by.

Glenelg is a cute little beachfront town/village/suburb (not sure) which seemed pretty historical as the site where the original settlers of South Australia landed way back when.

We didn’t do anything too energetic (of course 😂), but enjoyed a stroll along the pier, looking out over the beach.  Took a visit to the Glenelg museum at the visitor centre, saw some old photos and memorabilia of the town (and a swimwear exhibition 😳😳).

Tram stop in central Glenelg !

Australians at play !

It really was a beautiful day.  Great beaches, nice water etc..  We sat and watched the world go by for a while with a drink (we are great people watchers ! ).  Watched a bit of beach volleyball (couldn’t watch too much as it made us tired), then headed back to Adelaide for a light lunch.  We enjoyed it.  For us, it was so much more fun than a guided tour where we needed to keep to an agenda – we weren’t in the mood for that.

Back in Adelaide, a bit of light shopping, then back to the hotel before dinner.  We were amused to see this young (very) busker out doing his thing in the shopping area.

Light and early dinner close to the hotel, where we enjoyed watching the various Saturday night groups going out for the evening, including what looked like several hen night/bachelorette groups ! Kept us amused anyway !
