Happy new year, everyone! I had a wonderful holiday break, going on a two-week camping road trip to Adelaide with my family. Well, we actually only camped for three nights, and stayed at my mother’s house in Adelaide mostly, but still.
It was our first time camping with our little ones, and was slightly apprehensive about it. But we need not have worried. They absolutely loved sleeping in a tent.
We took three days to drive from Sydney to Adelaide. The scenery in rural Australia was just like this for 99% of the trip.
We packed our days in Adelaide with activities every day. Cherry picking in Adelaide Hills….
and apricot picking in my mother’s backyard.
We went to the beach a lot…..
and fed farm animals at the fantastic Farm Barn
I didn’t do any sewing for two weeks (and didn’t even miss it). But I made lots of jam.
On our way back to Sydney, the temperature soared to over 40 degrees. We chilled in the Murray River…. and gave up camping and sought air-conditioned accommodations instead.
If I had to pick one favorite moment from the trip though, it would be watching the sunset into the ocean on New Year’s Eve. Bye-bye, 2012!
