South Australia part two....

....we were up bright and early and off in the car to look for a geocache we hadn't found the previous day...hubby was secretly, no publicly pleased when the batteries in the gps went flat....so off to the old goal we went,
..hubby finally found it, a film cannister hidden in the wall, which sparked a conversation about the time hubby worked at Kodak and how the cannister was probably made in the building he worked in.....see how good geocaching is for the whole family!!! Lol!! 
From there we went on the the lake...
no photo as we were in a rush to get going on the road to Adelaide....
just out of interest as were were driving I turned on the gps and found there was a cache in a ruined church on a hill...only 2km away, as I told hubby we passed the road and then we were 4 km further on...missed that one!! Next was Wrights Beach....so I said turn left here.....facial expression was not happy...but...
after a short walk I ended up here....and after walking around several bushes in circles I finally found the cache....Yay!!!
....back to the car once again with flat batteries...note to self...buy better quality batteries next time!!!
We stopped for lunch at Tailem Bend....
and found these down the street

a bit of lawn mowing happening!

bride dressed and ready.....

ready to celebrate??

my favourite!!

as we travelled on towards Adelaide the weather packed up....

low cloud in the hills...
so here we are....the men folk are busy organising the soldiers for tomorrow, so a good chance to sit and sew...

I had some company.....
watched the sun go down, then enjoyed a lovely chicken curry for dinner...
off to do some knitting now...
happy sewing.

Glad to see you got David doing some geocaching, although I am sure he was probably not sorry to see the batteries running down on the gps! Love the Tailem Bend residents, great to see an orangutan joining in the fun. Hope you and the chicken curry are having a peaceful relationship..... have a great weekend xx

Lol, what sort of town is that? Cows and pigs in fancy dress? Trust you to find it. Glad you have found time for stitching.
