After a couple of rain showers during the night it had cleared up by the time we left the campground but it still felt chilly as we cycled past Willunga and then Aldinga to get on to the B23 road.
It was with great sadness we leave Deane and Lexi, they have been very kind and generous to us for the four days we have been here, thank you. Deane had already gone to work by the time we left so after saying goodbye to Lexi we cycled to Deane’s work to say goodbye to him.
Today we just sorted out our things, looked at the banking and played cards.
Deane and Lexi took us out to visit an outdoors shop and came back via Adelaide sea front where we stopped for a coffee and tea, the tea was actually very nice.
That was it for today.
Today we were off into Adelaide for a look around. It was around a 40 minute train journey ($10.50 for a day ticket) to Adelaide train station.
After a good nights sleep we had a whole day to do very little, a nice position to find yourself in. To start off the day we completed all of our cycle maintenance, both bicycles now have nice new chain and sprockets and all other components checked over to make sure there is no chance of an imminent failure. Although I couldn’t find anywhere to fit the motor Janet wanted.
Today was a very short day around 18 km leaving us plenty of time to get packed and dry the tent.
After a quite noisy night (a number of the cabins were occupied by construction workers who were not quiet). Nonetheless we were packed up early and ready to go by 8.00 am.
At 2 km out of Port Wakefield the dual carriageway started, it continued all the way into Adelaide.
Some of tbe time there is very little wind first thing in the morning, by first thing we mean dawn (around 7.30 am here), often even when strong winds have been forecast. Today we got up early and left at dawn, the winds were OK at this time.
It was a very hazy day, visibility left a lot to be desired.
A very nice relaxing day today, the wind constant from the North, raining on and off some of the showers heavy.
After a very sheltered night we packed up quickly, and left for what would normally be a very easy day.
Once on the highway the cycling started with a reasonable headwind, 25 km/h (or so) passing large fields of barley with the sea in tbe distance. Everything still looked very green but no rain today only clear skies.
