Thank goodness he was right for the footy?

Since leaving home Jim has succumbed to the flue and been pretty crook along the way.  We visited the doctors in Gawler and he is now on antibiotics to help with the chest infection (bordering on phenomena – so the doctor said).  I have had the pleasure of driving so that he could get some rest!

Our usual visit to the Barossa Valley, one of South Australia’s premium wine areas, means wine tastings and enjoying the food and atmosphere. But this time we just took a leisurely drive around. The grapes are all picked and the leaves are turning their golden or burgundy colours before falling from the vines. Pruning will be happenning soon. It is a very pretty time in the vineyards.

We have come down to Adelaide to catch up with friends Graham and Heather and watch the footy. Jim was feeling much better today so we had the opportunity to catch up with our friends and he was well enough to brave the footy.

And what a game it was! After a good first, but poor second quarter the Eagles were behind by 33 early in the third. But the team stayed focused and we come back and had a win. Great game to see!

We arrived at the ground to drizzling rain.

The weather improved and it was fine throughout the game.

Great win!

Jamie found us in the crowd!

Next stop Coober Pedy.

  1. Looks like you got a wave and a smile!
    How did the driving go? Does that mean hooking up the caravan too?

    Fortunately we had drive through bays or free camps so didn’t have to worry about all that stuff! But I think I could have done it if I needed to.

    Great to see you blogging about your travels Jim and Kerry. And a wonderful WCE win today! I think i’ve told you somewhere along the line that my hubby Brian is a South Aussie. He’s a Crows fan – WCE/Crows games always get a bit hairy in my house.
    Safe travels. Hope Jim keeps on the mend.

    Wow Jim, sorry to hear you have been unwell on your great adventure but pleased you are on the improve. Don’t let GC destroy the antibiotics with alcohol. Good that you just stepped up and took control Kerry.
    Looking forward to more stories as you venture north

    Greetings from Bilbao Spain. I suspect it was the Barossa red rather than the antibiotics that fixed the old boy. Kerry I don’t see anything wrong with driving across the Nullabour at 30 kilometres an hour. Great win by the Eagles. Looks like you are having fun
