No, I haven't turned all Mardi Gras (not that there's anything wrong with that! - To borrow a line from Seinfeld!) A big 'Hello' to all my gay and lesbian readers out there, More power to You! :-)
After a rushed breakfast of bacon and egg, we finally left by 10:00 am. We ambled down through Gladstone (where we had stayed once before), and stopped at many arts and crafts shops along the way. I put up my website posters at several shops.
The countryside was very green and lush and there were many paddocks filled with yellow canola flowers - very Brilliant! Onwards through many small villages until we reached the town of Clare.
I was eager to do some shopping and bought the 'Mamma Mia' soundtrack, a pair of jeans for $15 and a couple of pens. We stopped for lunch at a park just out of town and I had a salami and salad sandwich and an apricot jam sandwich. As we drove away from the lunch stop I sang loudly and spiritedly, 'Gimmee, Gimmee, Gimmee a man after midnight ....' courtesy of the ABBA soundtrack .... Poor Clare! ;-)
Then we continued on to the outskirts of Adelaide, South Autralia's largest city. We got to Gawler and I found a quaint little bookshop where I got three Harry Potter books for about $20 - Bargain!
After much searching and exploring, we found our friend's house and after happy greetings, had a great time talking with them, Mum, Dad, and two daughters. After many hours of chatting we tucked into a feast of K.F.C., chicken, nuggets, salads, chips and Pepsi!
More talk and much laughter before we tumbled in to bed for the night, after a hot shower of course!
... and That's Your daily bread! ...
