We arrive in Adelaide in the early evening, and are both looking forward to seeing our favourite bassist Lisa Flea, in her new designer home. Adelaide is a city of about 1.2 million people, situated on the south coast of Australia. It is the only state capital not to have been settled by convicts, which is one possible explanation for the relatively (and we do mean relatively!) refined sound of the Adelaide Australian accent. When we arrive, the sun is hot and the air is still, so after acquainting ourselves with Lisa’s house, we head to the beach for a relaxing evening.
What a strange feeling it was to see Lisa in the southern hemisphere!
Lisa takes us on a tour of local sights. This is Lisa's old school.
Henley Beach is the place for locals, so that's where we go! It's a Tuesday night but Adelaideans still head here after work to cool off in the ocean.
Chloe and Lisa are distracted by their gelati. The woman in the background is distracted by... Her son's behind
Lisa and Chloe dip their toes in the Southern Ocean. It's not that cold, considering Antarctica is on the other side.
Another fantastic sunset. The beach is west-facing and the sky is pristine.
Thank you Lisa! We leave Adelaide with a goodie-bag of local delights, including beer brewed in the Adelaide CBD and chocolate made just as close. We ate the Mint Slice biscuits already...
