Easter weekend is over and we’re enjoying our last couple of days in Adelaide. We’ve had a pretty relaxed day today with a visit to the CBD. Well needed after a busy couple of days spent on a Easter family lunch, crabbing in Ardrossan and on a winery tour in McLaren Vale.
We caught 95 blue crabs on our trip to Ardrossan, same spot as we went crabbing on Boxing Day last year. A record catch in my short crabbing career. As always I enjoy catching them more than eating them and Anders and Linda felt the same way. But a couple of freshly cooked crabs are yummy, maybe not 95 of them though.
Yesterday we enjoyed a great day on a tour around McLaren Vale visiting no less than six (!) wineries. My favourite was Wirra Wirra Vineyards which had really good wines. Chapel Hill impressed me the least. The guy that owns Settlement Wines was a real character and I enjoyed the wines there as well, especially the port wines.
The weather has been a bit average so far. Unfortunately it will be really nice and sunny again in Adelaide after we leave and it looks like we’ll have a rainy stay in Sydney coming up.
Dont get me wrong it’s still good to be on holiday and to hang out with Anders and Linda but if the weather was sunny and a tad bit warmer it would have been the icing on the cake.
