We have been in Adelaide for the past few's been crazy but just haven't had time to get on the computer that much.

Our first day in Adelaide, on Monday,it was Labour Day here and we actually changed our excursion so we took the city tram to Glenelg, which is the beach near Adelaide. We went down there and walked around for a little bit and then came back to the hotel.

Tuesday we took our excursion to Kanagaroo Island, which was just a comedy of errors. We got up at 5am in the morning and was picked up at 640am...took a motorcoach to the ferry then took the ferry to Kanagaroo Island. My mom has a lot of problems doing steps as she has issues with the muscles in her legs. So apparently while getting on the coach on Kanagaroo Island, she busted her toe nail and we didn't know it until we got to Seal Bay..and had to take care of it. So we didn't see the seals. Then the air conditioning on the bus went out. It was just a really bad day...So they sent another motor coach for us since we flew back from Kanagaroo Island. When we got on the airplane, I got stung by bee. Of course it was a turbo prop and the door was open hence the reason why that happened.

We got back to the hotel around 8pm and just took care of my mom's toe and what not. So it was just not a good day.

Wednesday was an awesome day...we went to Cleland Wildlife Park...we saw wallabys, kanagaroos, wombats, Tasmanian devils and koalas. I'm partial to the wombats. In any event, we had an up close encounter with a koala and then we got to hold one. It was awesome...we had pictures taken with the koala....totally adorable.

Today is Thursday and we are back at the airport. We are heading to Ayers Rock (Uluru) for two days.

Adelaide was nice, I wouldn't have minded staying here an extra day but oh well.

Tonight, we have the Sounds of Silence Dinner and then tomorrow we have the Uluru base tour.
