Adelaide to McLaren Vale

On our way out of the city we stopped at the fountain in Queen Victoria Square to take our official Adelaide photo and then headed for Glenelg. It was a lovely morning and there were plenty of people there enjoying the Proclamation Day celebrations.

After Glenelg we joined the ‘Coast to Vines’ Rail Trail, which follows the old railway reserve to McLaren Vale. The trail is a much more relaxing ride than using the roads. After wondering how the Guppy’s were getting on in Darwin’s tropical heat we found ourselves craving for a soft serve ice-cream, (Peter had told us he enjoyed the odd soft serve from McDonalds). So as we passed close to the shopping centre at Seaforth we went in search of a McDonalds before continuing on to McLaren Vale where we stopped for the night.

Zoom into the map and use the 'Satellite' layer to see our new location.
