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.
Jamie found us in the crowd!
Next stop Coober Pedy.
