Melbourne to Adelaide – Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Today we left the State of Victoria and flew to Adelaide in the State of South Australia.  It was a cool morning in Melbourne, but by the time we got to the airport, it was getting warm, and by the time we arrived in Adelaide it was in the upper 70’s.   It was beautiful warm day. We were met at the airport by our host as soon as we exited at the gate.  Their security for domestic flights is lax in comparison to the US.   

Adelaide has beautiful beaches. It didn’t take long to change into short sleeves and capris – the first I have used them on this trip.  As we get north to Cairns I hope to wear them every day!! But back to here in Adelaide - we walked around for about an hour today and saw them fishing for garfish, before returning to the house one of the beautiful Wests Lake.  We had snacks on the deck and watched the sun set – don’t forget we are in the southern hemisphere and the sun is setting around 5:17, as we are approaching the longest day in the northern hemisphere.

We then got ready to go to a Rotary meeting, where we presented a program on our beautiful Iowa.
